Muslim inmate at IoW Prison planned kidnap and escape

Detailed plans to kidnap a prison officer in a bid to escape from the Isle of Wight Prison, were found in the cell of a Muslim inmate.

An internal Prison Service document, seen by the BBC, reveals an Islamic State, or ISIS, flag was also found in the cell at the jail’s Parkhurst site.

The prisoner was placed in the jail’s close supervision unit.

A Ministry of Justice (MoJ) spokesman said security measures had been shown to be “robust” by the discovery.
