HMP Full Sutton is a category A/B prison in Full Sutton, East Riding of Yorkshire. Opened in 1987 as a purpose built high security prison, it has a capacity to hold 626 adult male inmates.
HMP Full Sutton is notorious for the high security prisoners it holds, for example Dennis Nilson, imprisoned for life, and John Cannan, sentenced to a 35 year tariff.
A, E and F wings are general wings. B, C and D wings accommodate vulnerable prisoners. G wing is the first night and induction wing and F wing is developing as a reintegration unit for those leaving the segregation unit.
The Ministry of Justice are planning to build a “super prison” next-door to HMP Full Sutton, holding up to 1000 category C prisoners.
