Ella Thompson at HMP Lowdham Grange

A video surfaced online taken by a prisoner at HMP Lowdham Grange recorded an incident where a group of officers appear to be violently attacking an inmate, as his harrowing screams provoked an emotional response from viewers. One of the prison guards is said to be Ella Thompson.

The inmate’s screams are so emotive, and he pleads for the officers to just ‘leave him alone’ but they raise their voices further and make rageful demands that are inaudible.

The inmate recording says this happens “on a daily basis” and that “they are bullying him yet again”. A source has said that the whistleblower was allegedly transferred to another facility before the prison became aware of the footage.

In another video, a different group of officers – but including Ella Thompson – attend an altruistic inmate’s cell and instead of handing him his lunch, aggressively thrust it over his person and onto the floor.

The prison has come under fire in recent months, as, in astonishing fashion three inmates died in three weeks in March.

A spokesperson at HMP Lowdham Grange said: “We have been made aware of the videos.

“We take such allegations very seriously and can confirm that two members of staff have been suspended pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct. We cannot provide any further comment whilst investigations are underway.”
