YESTERDAY, THE NEW violence reduction unit at the Midlands Prison was officially opened. 

It is to cater for the country’s most violent prisoners and can house a maximum of nine inmates.

There are additional security features intended to further safeguard staff at the unit.

However, there is also a multipurpose unit fitted out with bean bags and a new Xbox for prisoners who are making progress and addressing their violent tendencies. 

This morning we want to know: Should violent prisoners have access to video games while in prison?
