Here's some facts about Lindholme prison

Did you know?

HMP Lindholme is a category C/D prison in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Opened in 1985, the prison can hold up to 1,010 male inmates at once.

Accomodation consists of 10 wings (A to G and L wings). There are three large, modern, purpose-built wings (G, J and K). In addition to these, L wing was built as temporary accommodation and contains 30 double cells and currently holds the more vulnerable population. The rest of the accommodation consists of six small units (A to F wings), each containing 64 beds on eight spurs. These buildings were part of the original RAF camp and are sited around the main exercise yard. On A to F wings, prisoners have access to their own rooms, with a room key, and to a communal landing, where there is a refrigerator, television, hot water boiler, shower and toilet.

A brutal attack, filmed on a mobile phone, was carried out, in which a “bully” asks a fellow inmate: “should I break his leg?”. The video was sent to the mother of the victim, who sent it to the Mirror.
