    Two prison officers were today injured after being attacked by prisoners in the top security area at the Remand Facility.

    One of them has to undergo a CAT scan as a result of the blow he received to his head.

    The incident occurred around 7:20am during the feeding exercise.

    Acting Prisons Commissioner Dennis Pulchan has launched an immediate investigation, since the initial cause of the attack is yet to be determined.

    The Commissioner’s Office says during the attack, other officers as well as the Emergency Response Unit responded to quell the situation and the injured officers were rushed to hospital.
