Lags find guards’ files in waste bag

Justin Penrose reports:

A convict phoned a prison officer at his home and threatened to kill him after confidential details of hundreds of warders fell into the hands of lags.

Inmates got the names, addresses and National Insurance numbers of the officers when they were given the job of moving rubbish sacks.

The threatened warder recognised the inmate’s voice and a search of his cell at Ranby Prison, Notts, turned up a list of 350 officers and their personal details. The NI numbers would make it possible for criminals to clone the warders’ identities.
