Here's some facts about Leeds prison

Did you know?

HMP Leeds is a category B men’s prison in the Armlet area of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Opened in 1847, the prison has capacity to hold 1212 inmates.

The prison has wings A-F, and an intermediate social care unit. A wing has the vulnerable prisoner unit, and the segregation unit on A1. B, C, E and F wings hold adult male convicted prisoners and those on remand. D wing is a recovery unit and the first night centre on D1. The intermediate social care unit holds men with identified social care needs that cannot be met in the main prison environment.

One wing at HMP Leeds was put on lockdown on the 9th August 2017 after a violent incident involving two prisoners. The wing was locked down for 45 minutes, and all prisoners in that wing were locked in their cells. This meant at least one court hearing was missed.
