Security breach at Wakefield Jail

6:16pm 16th March 2010

Eight prison officers have been suspended in West Yorkshire on suspicion of smuggling mobile phones into one of Britain's top security jails.

An investigation is underway at Wakefield jail which holds some of the country's most dangerous offenders.

Former inmates include child killer Ian Huntley and serial murderer Harold Shipman.

An investigation was launched last October into an alleged phone racket.

No arrests have been made.
