Inmates win prison racism battle
The claims against the Ministry of Justice included complaints by Muslim prisoners who said they had been given contaminated halal food.
Some of the prisoners also claimed they had been assaulted by prison staff and other inmates.
A settlement was reached on Thursday in a trial at Leeds County Court.
Thirteen of the prisoners claimed they had been discriminated against on the grounds of race and religion, with some claiming they had been racially harassed and victimised.
