STAFFORD Prison’s annual report by the Independent Monitoring Board found education was excellent but there were concerns about the effects of cuts.

Members have access to every prisoner and every part of the prison.

Inspectors said education was excellent and the waste management unit was environmentally friendly and profit making.
