Prison officer T-shirts probed

An inquiry has begun following claims that a group of prison officers went on a night out wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the words "We have Madeleine McCann".

Photos of the staff were posted on Facebook for two months before their bosses at Wandsworth Prison in south London were alerted, the Metro said.

The incident led to a prison officer being sacked and four others disciplined, the paper reported.

A Prison Service spokesman said: "An investigation has taken place at HMP Wandsworth and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken following an incident concerning a number of prison officers outside of working hours and away from the prison.

"Until the disciplinary process is completed we are unable to comment further."
