Camp Hill decision still awaited

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 9:43

THE Prison Service has denied any decisions have been made over the future of Camp Hill.
The Isle of Wight jail was officially closed last month after the government announced the shock decision just weeks before.
More than 400 prisoners were transferred to mainland jails and staff either took voluntary redundancy, early retirement or jobs at mainland prisons.
As part of decommissioning, the jail has been stripped of its equipment.
Responding to rumours the 101-year-old jail was to become an immigration holding centre, a Prison Service spokesman said: "We are considering the future use of HMP Camp Hill. No decisions have been made."
