All spoof data for test purposes

The prisoners and staff at HMP Leeds have raised a massive £abc for local charities over the last 6 months. They have cycled the Tour de France route distance, and run from London to Glasgow, all without leaving Leeds on bike and treadmills in the gym to raise the money from sponsorship and donations from prisoners, families and friends. The governor gave the cheque,  at a brief presentation at the prison attended by a number of the prisoners, to the charities chairperson, Mrs B Smith, last Saturday

On Tuesday 24th March it was announced that all prisons in the UK would go into a "lock down" state, as a result on Covid19.  In simple terms it means that prisoners will be confined to their cells for the vast majority of each day, being unlocked only for meals and very limited exercise periods. All social visits are cancelled with immediate effect.

The prison staff will ensure that medical requirements will be met as per usual but there will be no "association periods" for the prisoners. Undoubtably this will be difficult and stressful for a number of prisoners, but the prison authorities are acting for the greater good of the majority of prisoners and staff.
