    Dammit, you beat me to it. I read this on BBC News this morning.

    Trying to get into a prison? Guaranteed to be interesting.

    Ashwell, Brockhill (within HMP Hewell), Latchmere House, Wellingborough. You've got my stumped on the fifth.

    None of these have been explored on other forums. Maybe a permission visit is more ideal?

    Prisons are designed to keep people in, I'd be more concerned with getting back out after gaining acces! ;)

    Ashwell looks like an achievable target, and is due for redevelopment in 2013 according to everyones favourite wikipedia rumour mill.

    Wellinborough is suggested for re-opening at some point, so probably been left totally secure.

    It can't be that hard to get in that one...

    My ex missus lives a few miles away, every now and again her father would not allow the 4 daughters out as there was an escaped con on the loose in Rutland!

    Once they get sold that will be the chance. Until then i would imagine security has not changed too much as they are still MOJ owned
