#HMP Coldingley

Alarming sanitary conditions reported at HMP Coldingley

Over half of the prisoner population at HMP Coldingley still live in cramped unimproved wings built in the 1960s, lacking in-cell sinks and toilets that are standard in nearly all other prisons. The Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) for HMP Coldingley in Surrey have been shocked at the worsening and unhygienic state of its decrepit sanitation.
