HMP Isle of Wight will feature on ITV tonight (Thursday).

The prison is the latest to be shown on Inside Prison: Britain Behind Bars.

The four-part documentary series for ITV goes inside the walls of six prisons to offer a sharp insight into the harsh realities of life behind bars today for thousands of inmates and staff.

In tonight’s episode, Search Team Officer Jamie is leading the hunt for contraband in HMP Isle of Wight, after the team receives a tip off that one of the inmates has a phone.

Five years ago, the prison became a specialist unit and is home to some of the most serious offenders in the UK, including more than 1,000 sex offenders.

Inside Prison: Britain Behind Bars is on at 9pm on ITV.
