THE Island is soon to have only one prison, as Parkhurst, Albany and Camp Hill will be combined to make HMP Isle of Wight.

A re-organisation of the prisons has been designed to improve protection for the public and reduce re-offending.

HMP Isle of Wight will hold nearly 1,700 prisoners across the three sites, making it one of the largest and most complex prisons in the country. It will be be officially launched on April 1 but the three sites will continue to be called Parkhurst, Albany and Camp Hill.
