Inmates at the Verne Prison on Isle of Portland, Dorset have reportedly “been placing their mouths over the dispensers and consuming it” and according to one prison official, “There was a fight after one of the prisoners got violent after drinking the gel,” leading to the disarmament of the prison’s viral defense. |Telegraph|
