According to a report in Belfast Live this morning , Magilligan Prison is to close with staff laid off and prisoners shifted to a new facility in Northern Ireland.

In a social media statement this morning Claire Sugden MLA said  “There are reports in local media about Magilligan Prison closing. This is not true. I spoke with Northern Ireland Prison Service this morning who assured me that the report is untrue.

Certainly, as Minister it was my intention to ensure the future of Magilligan through significant capital investment to bring the Prison to an appropriate standard.”

We have reached out to the prison service who will be responding shortly with a statement.
