Jailbirds' video nasties

Prisoners are bombarding Northern Ireland jail bosses with orders for hardcore pornography and ultra-violent movies to view in the privacy of their own cells.

Sunday Life reveals today that notorious killers and rapists have submitted requests for thousands of DVDs in the past year — packed with scenes of sex and violence.

Using Freedom of Information requests we obtained the names of every film requested by inmates at all three of Ulster’s prisons.

There were more than 2,500 orders for DVDs in 2009 alone from prisoners at Maghaberry, Magilligan and Hydebank Wood jails.
