The Latest Developments from the Winson Green Prison Riots.
Yesterday just before 9am a G4S prison officer at WinsonGreen Prison in Birmingham had been attending a disturbance on N wing as the officers were trying to get prisoners back in cells and as they were trying one of the officers was threatened with a used blood filled syringe as another came up behind him and snatched a set of keys off the officers belt.
Soon after a major disturbance had broken out on N Wing which then moved quickly to M, L & P wings which forced G4 prisons officers to withdraw from the effect areas & double lock the inner security gates with security chains.
Just after 10am West Midlands Police & West Midlands fire service started to arrive at the prison.
I had managed to make contact with a good reliable source that’s in contact with inmates within the prison so I was able to give running updates to exactly what was happening inside the prison.
