It’s alleged the 31-year-old attempted to get five mobile phone sim cards and 50 34g sachets of synthetic cannabis into HMP Haverigg on December 23.

Have your say
Isn't it about time the prison was pensioned off and shut down.
It must be a nightmare to try to totally secure the perimeter fence, the location being so remote.
Lets move the prisoners closer to the cities where most of them come from, re-assign the staff to other prisons , take down those dilapidated buildings and return the site to nature.
