Muslim prisoners at top security jail double in two years
by Richard Edwards
Islamic terrorists and other Muslim prisoners at one of Britain's highest security jails have almost doubled in number in the past two years, according to new figures.
The population of Muslim inmates at Whitemoor prison in Cambridgeshire has risen from 73 in 2006 to 140 last year - representing around a third of all prisoners.
The statistics are revealed after reports that Muslim gangs were being left by staff to "police themselves" at the jail. Staff did not know how to "challenge inappropriate behaviour", prison inspectors said.
