Paedophile Loses 'Slopping Out' Case
A convicted paedophile lost a High Court damages action today over the practice of 'slopping out' in prisons.
Roger Gleaves, 77, claimed that having to use a bucket as a toilet in his cell while serving time at Albany prison on the Isle of Wight was a breach of his human rights.
He asked a judge for a damages award of £2,600, but the action was dismissed by Mr Justice Hickinbottom in London.
The Ministry of Justice contested actions brought by Gleaves and another ex-Albany inmate, 30-year-old Desmond Grant, which, if successful, could have forced the Government to spend millions on upgrading old jails.
Grant's case was also rejected by the judge.
Gleaves, who is due to be released from prison in seven months, was present in court for the ruling.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
