Traditional prison window bars are to be phased out in England and Wales, under Ministry of Justice (MoJ) plans.

New jails will instead be fitted with toughened glass and air vents.

Ministers said the windows would be hard to break and better for stopping prisoners "accessing contraband".

Campaigners said bars were "yesterday's technology" and windows would provide a more normal environment in which people would take responsibility for their own lives.
