Strangeways prisoner tests positive for Coronavirus


A prisoner has tested positive for coronavirus in the first confirmed case of an inmate contracting the disease in the UK. 

The man was behind bars at HMP Manchester, also known as Strangeways, and is currently being treated in hospital.

There are 13 inmates and four members of staff now in isolation, however no other prisoners or wardens have yet tested positive.

No further details about the prisoner have been released.

Bosses at the prison say hygiene is being prioritised, but that they were striving to 'ensure a normal regime for as long as possible' during the outbreak.

Visits are going ahead as normal. More to follow.
