Fourth man given extra jail term after HMP Long Lartin prison mutiny

Evesham Editorial 21st May, 2024   0

A FOURTH man has been sentenced today (Tuesday, May 21) for his part in prison mutiny at HMP Long Lartin.

On September 24, 2019 prison staff came under attack by prisoners who threw pool balls at them, resulting in staff withdrawing from the wing.

Tornado Teams were brought in from HM Prisons from across the country, including HMP Birmingham, HMP Bristol, HMP Woodhill, HMP Bullingdon, HMP Featherstone, HMP Brinsford, HMP Oakwood and HMP Cardiff.

Tornado Teams are specialist prison control and restraint teams; once inside the prison, within ten minutes they regained control of the wing.

This morning Jasbir Takhar, 47, pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Worcester Crown Court.

He was given 28 months to run alongside the 28 years he is already serving.




This follows three other men being sentenced last Friday (May 17) for their part in the mutiny.

Dean Cody, 38 was given 45 months in addition to the 21 years he was already serving.


Derek Law, 40, was given 40 months in addition to the 19 years he was already serving.

John Ward, 43, was given 16 months to run alongside the 32 years he is already serving.
