'No plans to block prison TV series'

The government has no plans to try to block future episodes of the TV series on the Islands prison.

That's according to Chief Minister, Howard Quayle, who also said the government is unlikely to have the power to do so in written response to a question from Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse in Tynwald this week.

Mr Quayle adds editorial control of the programme rests with ITV and the Department of Home Affairs has worked with the broadcasters to address any potential inaccuracies or other issues.

The series called 'The Best Little Prison in Britain?' gives an insight into the lives of both inmates and officers at the institution in Jurby, and raked in over 3.5 million views on its first episode.
