A rat-infested institution that's rife with violence and where inmates are increasingly self-harming. That's the finding of a damning report into Chelmsford Prison.

The report has been released just months after inspectors issued a rare, urgent warning. Its title, Violence and death in a declining prison, encapsulates the issues.
