Boris Johnson has pledged to spend a further £100m on improving prison security in a move quickly dismissed as bravado.

The money will go toward airport-style technology, including X-ray scanners and metal detectors, to prevent drugs, weapons and mobile phones getting into jails, and strengthening the Counter Corruption Unit. The spending is in addition to £70m announced last year for the same purpose.
