UK - Third night of rioting at prison complex near Doncaster

from local and national media
4 November 2010 - Prisoners are involved in a third night of rioting at a prison complex in South Yorkshire.
A prison source told the BBC prisoners were rioting in the adult section at Moorland prison, near Doncaster.
Fire engines, police and ambulance were at the scene and extra prison officers were seen entering the complex.
Violence flared at the adjacent Moorland Young Offenders Institution after prisoners refused to return to their cells on Tuesday and Wednesday.
As a result of damage caused to the buildings, 86 prisoners were earlier transferred to other prisons.
A Prison Service spokesman confirmed a "disturbance" started on the adult side of the site at 1930 GMT.
Doncaster, 03 November 2010 - MORE than 100 prison officers were drafted in after scores of prisoners went on the rampage at a South Yorkshire prison - hurling missiles, starting fires and damaging cells.
Around 100 officers were scrambled from jails in South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, West Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, to help restore calm after violence flared at Moorland Young Offenders Institution, Hatfield Woodhouse, near Doncaster, on Tuesday.
The riot broke out at 8.50pm and was not declared over until 1.15am next day.
They said the riot broke out during a period of association, where prisoners are given free time to mix with others in a communal area, but that tensions had been rising all day.
South Yorkshire Police officers, paramedics and the fire brigade were called to the prison on Tuesday night.
At 7pm on Wednesday night, a fight broke out on a houseblock at Moorland prison which resulted in 42 young offenders refusing to return to their cells. Prison Service Tornado teams entered the prison at 1am. The prisoners offered no resistance.
