    A different take on the news from the BBC:
    Issuing prison officers with cans of pepper spray will worsen the current "culture of conflict", a former prison governor has told BBC News.

    John Podmore, who worked at high-security Belmarsh Prison in London, said there was "a real risk the pepper sprays will be turned on the officers".

    Heard him on Jeremy Vine. No wonder the rank and file have lost confidence. He says tht the PO's could have the spray taken from them whilst they patrol but this was never going to be the modus operandi.
    I'm sure that Brixton prison is now a model for all other prisons after him having his hand on the tiller, and not the worst prison in the UK for creating terrorists.
    Funny that the governor of a prison up north who I went to school with and worked underneath Podmore has remained silent on this, perhaps because they arent allowed to comment but perhaps because it isnt worth a comment.
    I see it as like issuing tasers to the police. It is not without problems, issued sparingly and with proper training and exercise of discretion a very useful tool. Would he pop up on radio and say the police shouldnt be allowed to have it because someone might steal one? Of all the risks of its use that must come pretty low down the list
