It was revealed yesterday that 70 prisoners were let out of jail last year – by mistake!
More than 70 prisoners were let out of jail by mistake in the worst 12 months for prison safety on record, new figures revealed today.
During 2016/17, 71 people were released from jail who should have been kept behind bars – an increase of seven on the previous high of a year earlier.
Extraordinarily, people wrongly released are not always pursued and re-arrested, a Ministry of Justice report reveals today.

Screw: “Are you sure – I thought you were only just starting a ten stretch”
Basher: ”No, it’s okay – time off for good behaviour”
Screw: “What, after you started that riot last week and burned down E wing?”
Basher: “Just a misunderstanding – governor says I can go”
Screw: “Are you sure? You wouldn’t fib to me would you?”
Basher: “Course not”
