A number of staff and an inmate were taken to hospital on Friday after an incident of violence at the HMP Aylesbury young offenders facility.

A number of prison officers and one inmate were taken to hospital for assesment, several inmates were also treated locally.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice, which is headed up by our own Aylesbury MP David Lidington, said: "An incident involving a number of prisoners took place on Friday 21 July.

“We do not tolerate violence against our hardworking staff. Where incidents like this occur, we will always work closely with the police to push for the strongest possible punishment.”

However, according to the BBC the force has confirmed that officers were called to a 'report of disorder' at 11pm on Friday night - however 'officer deployment was not required'.
