Lockdown for those inside the prison service.

Bishop Rachel (who is the Church of England Bishop for Women’s Prisons), talks to Suzy Diamond-White, Governor of HMP Eastwood Park, based in the Diocese of Gloucester, to discuss the impact Covid-19 has had on the staff, women and the running of the prison.
