The report – which makes 108 proposals for change – said that, separated from CCTV cameras, the isolation unit looked ‘exactly as it must have in the 19th century’

It said jail officers portrayed prisoners as ‘rubbish’ from the rest of the jail system As one detainee arrived at the unit, an officer had shouted: ‘Another lacking for you ‘

New entries were told they had come to ‘the end of the line’

The re-classification of Dartmoor from Classification B to lower-security Classification C was seen by officers as a ‘threat to them what’s more, to the “hard” jail they ran’ One prisoner told the inspectors: ‘When you come to Dartmoor you enter the as it were time machine I know of Straight back 200 years

The jail officers’ pioneer at the imprison denied the charges last night, including that he could not get it why the report had reprimanded staff so harshly

Trevor Horn, the executive of the Devon jail’s Jail Officers’ Association, said: ‘We do not spook what’s more, we are not brutal towards inmates

‘If the Jail Benefit send us their issue youngsters they are managed with decently what’s more, equally

‘We had a splendid report in 1997 what’s more, we haven’t changed the way we do the work since then ‘
