    I am genuinely 'WTF' at the official response given by the Prison Service.

    Given what has happened in this story it is blatantly flase.

    Gee, prison to cheap to get in someone from outside who doesn't have a criminal record. Goes and gives it to someone inside, and then claim he had no access without supervision and was not able to access records of others. If he was able to lock down the entire system he "owned" it and had access to all you fracking numpties.

    They must've paid a lot more for the "expert company" (most likely an ex-inmate for data theft) than it would've cost them to get experts in the first place.

    Well done. Tax money is the money easiest to spend, eh?

    And in other news, 1097 inmates of Ranby Prison (operational capacity 1098) sue HM Prison Service for negligent breach of data protection by allowing a convicted cyber-criminal free reign over their computers. Government settles out of court for £1m each.

    Honestly what did they expect. Anyone with half an ounce of sense could have foretold this happening.

    One would hope that ALL those involved with the decision and oversight would be required to tender their resignations.The management should also be held liable for the cost of all needed repairs. Sadly they will promise not to do it again and get a promotion for being so modest.

    Who in their right mind wants to see prisoners get TV in ANY prison. They are supposed to be punished not turned into TV junkies.

    The Criminal Justice system should really be at the top of the governments priority in funding - the law of the land is what keeps people in line.

    You would be surprised to learn the places that need it most dont actually get enough funds to do allot themselves apart from "get by".

    Probation barely have enough money to actually help do anything with offenders - no money to invest in itself either.

    We currently use computers that are older than the dinosaurs.
