Island prison staff back UK protests

Staff at the prison have been showing their support for fellow officers protesting in the UK.

Tens of thousands of prison officers have walked out today over conditions in the country's jails.

The protests are being backed by the Prison Officers Association which encouraged its 35,000 members to make their feelings known.

This morning, the union posted a photo of staff outside the Isle of Man Prison in Jurby.
