HMP Kennet – Melling’s prison is closing and the only surprise is that it is 7 months early!

The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above

This has been a odd story for a while now in that the closure of the prison is still often talked about as being a ‘shock announcement’. It really is not as it was always meant to be a temporary prison from when it first opened. In fact the only ‘surprise’ is that it is closing 7 months before the originally stated closing date.

My last relevant posting on this subject, from the 8th of June, is below:-

It is also in Melling Civil Parish not Maghull but that fact does not seem to settle with folks either.
