Strangeways prison: Screws cars attacked

Several screws (prison slang for prison officer) cars were attacked outside Strangeways prison* last night as hooded gang smashed windows and threw paint stripper over the body work. The gang legged it when a local cop patrol spotted them, unfortunately one man was arrested after the attack. Paint/varnish stripper and double sided sticky tape were found in the car park where the easily reproducible attack happened. It is common for attacks to happen on screws in revenge for their violence and repression on prisoners inside, a molotov attack occurred this year in Scotland.

* FOTH: Also known as HMP Manchester, but we will always know it as Strangeways the scene of the biggest prison rebellion (1990) there has been on this shitty island of incarceration!)
