Corrections takes over running of Mt Eden Prison

From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 27 July 2015

The Department of Corrections takes over the running of Mount Eden Prison from British based company Serco, but the Union representing prison officers says instead of stepping in, it's more about saving face. Corrections is managing the facility for the next three months while a string of allegations including a fight club, contraband, prisoner injuries and the death of one inmate under the watch of the private contractor is investigated.
