April 24 2011 – Two prisoners got onto the roof of Horfield Prison, Bristol at 11.30am. Cops and a specialist unit were called to assist prison staff when it was known that the two men had gained access to the roof. It is still not clear how the men gained access. A police helicopter was used to monitor the incident. One prisoner came down in the early afternoon next day, but the other remained and later came down voluntarily.
