FIREFIGHTERS were called to the third fire in eight days at Winchester Prison last night.

It happened at 9.50pm on Wednesday, after an inmate set fire to his waste paper basket.

Ten firefighters from Winchester Fire Station attended.

Nobody was injured.

In a similar incident last week three people were taken to hospital after two fires broke out in the early hours of Wednesday morning (July 23).
