Prisoners at Stocken given rating based on how likely they are to be violent

The MoJ says it is proving a success

There has been positive feedback to a new project at Stocken Prison which sees inmates given a score based on how likely they are to be violent.

It is one of 16 jails across the country taking part in the pilot - with hopes it will improve safety.

The Ministry of Justice will now consider whether to roll it out across the rest of the country.
