New prison - a job well done

The Home Affairs Minister says the new prison at Jurby, which is now officially up and running, is another example of a job well done by government.

Adrian Earnshaw was speaking as the final inmates made the move from Victoria Road in Douglas to the £41 million pound northern facility.
