Rowdy behaviour at the Springhill jail

A ruckus by inmates has led to a lock-down at theĀ  medium-security prison in Springhill.

Shannon Oickle, the assistant warden at the Springhill Institution; says that was enacted just before 1 yesterday afternoon.

Staff at the men’s prison were trying to settle them down, but as of last night; a number of inmates continued to refuse to go back to their cells.

One inmate was hurt and taken to an outside hospital.
