A NEW governor has been appointed at HMP Isle of Wight.

The Ministry of Justice today (Wednesday) confirmed Andy Lattimore, currently the governor of HMP Bullingdon, will take over from departing governor James Shanley.

It is not yet known when he will take up the post, although it is likely to be in the new year.

As previously reported, Mr Shanley announced he was leaving the Isle of Wight after just 16 months in the job — having taken over from predecessor Barry Greenberry — to become the governor of HMP Nottingham.

He commutes to the Island from the Midlands and said the move would enable him to spend more time with his family. He told the County Press he loved the Island and had not been looking for another job, but had been approached about the Nottingham job.
