This episode includes reference to drugs and violence in prisons. A Prisons Service spokesperson said:
“Our £100m boost to bolster prison security is helping us to clamp down on the trade in drugs and contraband behind bars, which will further tackle prison violence.
“Drugs, weapons and mobile phone finds all fell last year and violence has decreased.”
