A prisoner raised the alarm yesterday afternoon when he found his cell mate hanging in a toilet block at Horfield Prison, in Bristol. Paramedics tried to revive the remand prisoner but he was pronounced dead by a prison doctor. On Tuesday a 48-year-old prisoner on "suicide supervision" - was found hanging in his prison cell. A third prisoner was found dead on Wednesday after a suspected drug overdose.
