The week started with news of 20 prison officers being injured in a number of different incidents at Feltham YOI over the previous weekend which prompted calls for the institution's closure.
Justice Secretary David Gauke wrote a piece in the Times committing the prison service to help more prisoners into jobs on release by increasing the number of prisoners working outside the gates on ROTL.
Two consultations were also launched: the Justice Committee wants your views on prison governance while the Sentencing Council wants to hear from you about sentencing people with mental health (including drug & alcohol) problems.
As always, click on the tile to see the full story.
The Week in Justice is kindly sponsored by specialist prison photographer Andy Aitchison.
