Crisis in Britain's prisons laid bare: Shocking footage of brutal beatings, Spice 'zombies' and organised fight clubs shows scale of problems facing UK's jails

Shocking footage has revealed prisoners taking drugs, displaying mobile phones and violently hitting each other in UK prisons.
Footage from several jails across the country has highlighted the crisis faced by the current prison system.
A video taken from within Liverpool jail shows one prisoner laid zombie-like on the floor and shaking as another stumbles around the room smoking from a pipe thought to contain the drug Spice, reports the Sunday Mirror.

The man with a tattoo on his left arm tries to grab hold of a wall for support as he moves around but another man humiliates him and pulls down his shorts.
One giggling inmate in the room says: 'This is what you get, the ­consequences of smoking Spice.'
As the man starts to come round a bucket of water is thrown over him while in the other corner of the room the man in black shorts and socks is completely unaware of what is happening.

This alarming clip has been sent to The Ministry of Justice along with other shocking footage from within Buckley Hall jail in Lancashire, Pentonville in North London and Featherstone jail in Staffordshire.
Mark Fairhurst, national chair of the Prison Officers' Association, said: 'The POA are dismayed but by no means shocked.
He added that the POA have asked for security to be upped so that 'everybody entering' a prison would be 'searched in the same way as at an airport.'
In the clips from Buckley Hall jail brazen inmates show off their stash of mobile phones, drugs said to be cocaine, vials of steroids, bag of Spice and syringes.
A man can be heard describing the haul and saying: 'HMP Buckley Hall, belting, what a jail.'  
A video said to be filmed in 2017 from inside Pentonville shows a prisoner being repeatedly hit over the head as others watch. 
Labour's Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon said: 'The shocking footage shows the chaos in our prisons. They are in crisis, fuelled by the Tories' reckless cuts agenda.'
The Ministry of Justice confirmed the Liverpool video was under 'urgent investigation.'
A spokesperson told the Mirror: 'This is absolutely unacceptable. Anyone found behaving in this way can expect to spend significantly longer behind bars.
'To stop drugs from entering prisons we are investing £40 million in safety and security, £14 million each year targeting organised crime and a further £2 million to detect and block mo bile phones.'
