Ford open prison riot quelled

Specialist prison guards in body armour have quelled a riot by around 40 inmates at an open jail in West Sussex.

A number of buildings were burned to the ground at Ford Prison, near Arundel, during the violence which broke out early on New Year's Day.

Reports say all the rioters have now been detained and no-one has been injured; an inquiry has been launched.
