Riot breaks out at Birmingham Prison

Birmingham Prison is in lockdown this evening after a riot erupted and inmates refused to go back to their cells.

Prison staff are involved in a stand-off with inmates at HM Prison Birmingham, one of the country’s biggest prisons.

A spokesman for G4S, which runs the jail, said: ‘Our teams are responding to an incident on one wing at HM Prison Birmingham.

‘We are working with colleagues from Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service to bring the incident to a safe conclusion.’

Sources have told the Birmingham Mail that the unrest began at around 3.30pm.

And other witnesses told Metro.co.uk that there are ‘two support units and alarms going off all over the place’ at the prison.

Prisoners have also been heard chanting ‘we want burn’ – a reference to the cigarette ban, which was brought into UK prisons on September 1.

Janine, whose brother is an inmate in HMP Birmingham, told Metro.co.uk: ‘I got a weird text message at about 6pm saying it had all kicked off in the green again, and to watch the news because this will be a big one.

‘Hopefully my brother will get hold of a mobile phone in the next few hours to let me know what is happening.

‘It sounds like a riot, but it could be a prison break to get cigarettes.’
