Among complaints made to prison guards my inmates has been the peculiar complaint that a guard has been picking his nose, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The release was made by the National Offender Management Service.

The Metro write:

Cramped cells, slopping out and a lack of exercise… all things you might expect prisoners to get upset about.

But no, what really fires inmates’ ire is a warden who picks his nose… then eats the evidence.

Prison bosses trawled through hours of CCTV footage after not one, but two, complaints were made about the guard’s gross habit. Thankfully, he’s in the clear.
