HM Prison Wakefield

Her Majesty's Prison Wakefield is a Category A men's prison, located in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England. The prison is operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service, is the largest high-security prison in the United Kingdom; the prison has been nicknamed the "Monster Mansion" due to the large number of high-profile, high-risk sex offenders and murderers held there. Wakefield Prison was built as a house of correction in 1594. Most of the current prison buildings date from Victorian times; the current prison was designated a Dispersal prison in 1966 and is the oldest of the Dispersal prisons still operating across England and Wales. The English Dialect Dictionary noted references to Wakefield were short for referring to the long-standing prison; the exercise yard at Wakefield had a mulberry tree. This has been linked to the nursery rhyme "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" by the erstwhile prison governor, RS Duncan in his book'Here we go round the mulberry bush': The House of Correction 1595 / HM Prison Wakefield 1995.

This origin of the song is propounded on the prison's website. There is no corroborative evidence to support this theory; the tree was removed in May 2019. A cutting from it was taken by a retired prison officer; this will be used in an attempt to grow the tree again. During the First World War, Wakefield Prison was used as a Home Office work camp; the ordinary criminal prisoners were removed, the new influx were sentenced to two or more years' imprisonment for refusing to obey military orders. After the closure of Dyce Work Camp in October 1916, Wakefield Prison was used to intern conscientious objectors. In September 1918 a group of conscientious objectors took advantage of a slackening in the prison regime that occurred towards the end of the war, by rebelling and refusing to undertake any work, they issued a list of demands for better treatment, known as the Wakefield Manifesto. As a high-security prison, Wakefield was used to house IRA prisoners at various points in the 20th century. In some cases in the 1950s, the IRA attempted to free the prisoners, such as Cathal Goulding in 1956 and James Andrew Mary Murphy in 1959.

During a hunger strike by Provisional IRA prisoners, Frank Stagg died in Wakefield Prison on 12 February 1976. The case brought international media attention as the Irish Government denied Stagg's last request for a military funeral march from Dublin to Ballina, instead arranged for the Irish police to bury him secretly. On 1 March 1976, Merlyn Rees, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in the Wilson ministry, announced that those people convicted of causing terrorist offences would no longer be entitled to Special Category Status, challenged during hunger strikes. In 2001 it was announced; the unit was to house the most dangerous inmates within the British prisons system, was the first such unit of its kind to be built in the United Kingdom. In March 2004 an inspection report from Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons criticised staff at Wakefield Prison for being disrespectful to inmates; the report claimed that the prison was "over-controlled", a third of the prison's inmates claimed to have been victimised.

Wakefield Prison holds 600 of Britain's most dangerous people. Accommodation at the prison comprises single-occupancy cells with integral sanitation. All residential units have kitchens available for offenders to prepare their own meals. An Incentives and Earned Privileges system allows standard and enhanced offenders the opportunity of in-cell TV. All offenders are subject to mandatory drugs testing and there are voluntary testing arrangements, which are compulsory for all offenders employed, for example as wing cleaners or kitchen workers. HMP Wakefield offers a range of activities for inmates, including charity work, an accredited course in industrial cleaning, a Braille shop where offenders convert books to Braille; the Education Department is operated by The Manchester College, offers learning opportunities ranging from basic skills to Open University courses. Other facilities include a prison shop and multi-faith chaplaincy. A prison inspection in 2018 found that Wakefield Prison was on the whole calm, secure and well managed.

The rest of the prison service could learn good practise from Wakefield. Despite the above prisoners needing psychiatric care face unacceptable delays before they are transferred to secure psychiatric hospitals and prisoners' mental condition worsens while they are waiting for transfer. Peter Clarke said, "Because of the unacceptable delays in doing so, many prisoners across the prison estate are held in conditions that are not in any way therapeutic and indeed in many cases exacerbate their condition; the situation at Wakefield was yet another example of prisoners with severe illness not receiving the care that they needed." Inspectors noted a prisoner, "exceptionally challenging to manage and had complex needs that could not be met in the prison. While staff attempted to manage him positively and constructively, his condition was deteriorating during a lengthy wait to be admitted to a secure hospital," according to the inspection report.

After a period at Wakefield transferred to Long Lartin to enable his terminally ill mother to have easier visit

Stellatoma rufostrigata

Stellatoma rufostrigata is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Mangeliidae. The adult shell grows to a length of its diameter 4.25 mm. The shortly fusiform shell has a short siphonal canal, it is shining. It is yellowish-while, with less conspicuous traces of red-brown streaks on rihs; the shell contains 7 whorls, of which a little more than one forms a smooth protoconch. The subsequent whorls are separated by a waved suture, they are convex and excavated at their upper part. They show rather strong, oblique, axial ribs, those behind the peristome stronger; these ribs are pointedly tubercled about their median part, just below the excavation in upper whorls and at the shoulder of the body whorl. On this latter the ribs are fainter towards the base, otherwise the shell is nearly smooth, but for faint, remote spirals, a little more conspicuous on the siphonal canal, fine growth lines; the aperture is oval, angular above, with a short siphonal canal below. The peristome is thin, with a shallow sinus above.

The columellar margin is concave directed to the left below, with a rather thin layer of enamel, stronger near its base. This species is found in the Halmahera Sea off Indonesia. Bouchet P.
