Full Sutton is a jail not a holiday camp

FOR the benefit of the large number of prisoners at Full Sutton who are complaining about the "awful" conditions in their current "home", and who presumably cannot read (Jail House Strop, July 18) I would like to remind them that the sign outside their camp says: "HM PRISON".

It does not say hotel, theme park, holiday home, luxury apartments, leisure complex, sports arena or even hostel.

They are in a prison.

If they do not like it do not do wrong. It is up to them if they wish to enjoy what the rest of us obtain by not breaking the law.

I hope no one has any sympathy for the "suffering".
