Ford Open Prison Riot Photos: The Benny Hill Special

by | 1st, January 2011

FORD prison burns. Well, bits of it do. At the open jail near Arundel, West Sussex, prisoners responded badly to a call to have them breathalysed. Contraband booze will not be tolerated. So. Here’s the inmates smashing the place up instead. It is all deeply serious stuff.

Mark Freeman, of the Prison Officers Association says the sight of officers chasing inmates for breath tests:

“Staff have been running around trying to breathalyse prisoners, it’s been reminiscent of the end scenes of The Benny Hill Show, the only thing missing was the music.”

Get a load of Butch chasing Big William about in his stockings. And then setting fire to the little bald chap’s beard. This what happens when Benny Hill is not longer on the TV at Christmas time, and Elton John, Dawn French and Matt Lucas have yet to confirm their appearances in a film of the man’s life…
