Bosses at Doncaster Prison say they will make the jail a facility to be proud of, after it was slated in an inspection.
An unannounced inspection of the jail, at Marshgate, has described it as a prison ‘in decline’.
Wyn Jones, director of custodial operations at the prison’s operator. Serco, said: “Serco has a strong track record of prison management in the UK and abroad and we are proud of what has been achieved at HMP & YOI Doncaster over the past 20 years. However the prison has recently faced a number of significant challenges and has sometimes struggled to cope with some of these.
