An inquest into the death of another prisoner at HMP Woodhill has started this week and is expected to last for up to 15 days.

Mark Culverhouse, 29, was found unresponsive with a ligature in the segregation unit of HMP Woodhill days after he arrived at the jail in April last year.

He was resuscitated and taken to Milton Keynes Hospital but died the following day.

Mark was the second of four prisoners to die at Woodhill during 2019 and the inquest is due to look at the jail's suicide and self-harm prevention measures as well as the actions of mental health professionals and healthcare.
