Here's some facts about North sea camp prison

Did you know?

HMP North Sea Camp is a category D prison in Frieston (near Boston), Lincolnshire. Opened in 1935, the prison has capacity to hold 420 male inmates.

Accommodation is provided in six residential units, with single accommodation available for up to 40 prisoners and the remaining facilities being shared and consisting of cells and dormitories. In addition to this, there are a further 67 beds within five detached houses, which are used for long-term prisoners living independently.

Gary Hart (found guilty of causing the Selby rail crash in 2001) stayed here momentarily in 2003. His Land Rover Defender towing a trailer swerved off the M62 westbound just before a bridge over the East Coast Main Line railway track. His car ran 26 metres down an embankment and rolled onto the southbound track. After trying and failing to reverse off the track, he exited the vehicle and called the emergency services. Meanwhile, a passenger train hit the car, and approximately 642m later hit a freight train. This resulted in ten deaths. Hart was sentenced to five years for causing death by dangerous driving. He served 30 months of this sentence.
