HMP Northumberland is a category C prison, with a current capacity of 1,354. It was formed in 2011 from the merger of two prisons situated only a few hundred metres apart; HMP Castington and HMP Acklington. In 2013, Sodexo, a private company, formally took over management of the prison, and the Howard League for Penal Reform recently reported that it was ‘failing miserably’ in its task to operate effectively as a penal establishment.
