LONDON (Reuters) - An incident involving 40 inmates at Maidstone Prison in Kent, in southeast England, was resolved with no injuries to staff or prisoners, officials said on Saturday.
The incident, described as a "riot" by a senior member of the prison officers' trade union, was confined to the Thanet Wing of the prison, which houses about 180 inmates. The prison houses some 600 inmates in total.
"An investigation is under way and the perpetrators will be dealt with appropriately by the prison," the Prison Service said.
