So nice to see that in an emergency our training takes over. I came away with ...

Re: A little arrogant perhaps?

I do believe that HMP give a boot allowance we get...

Re: HMP Manchester

I did my training at Manchester in the training block near the prison we had a tour of the prison arranged for us but even as POELT's it was skin of the teeth to get in as the security department was not keen!!!.
Good luck to you but i think you will meet a brick wall on your request...... :slsad:
