‘Following a spate of high profile escapes, Law in Action asks does the open prison system need reforming?

This week, Joshua Rozenberg visits Kirkham Prison – an open prison in Lancashire – to find out what open prisons are really like. In the studio, Joshua speaks to Conservative MP Philip Davies – who has been highly critical of the system – and journalist Noel ‘Razor’ Smith, who was given a 26-year sentence for bank robbery.’
