A female prison officer who was filmed performing a sex act on a male lag while in her uniform is facing a probe, it has been revealed.
The woman is thought to have said it took place at a private address, but if the incident did take place on prison property with a serving lag then it would amount to criminal misconduct, officials said.
The Sun reported that the x-rated video was shared among cons on illegal mobiles at a category-B prison.
A jail source told the title: “The identity of the prisoner is unclear, but the officer is readily identifiable.
“It’s graphic. If it did happen on prison property with a serving prisoner, it would amount to criminal misconduct.”
The Prison Service said a member of staff at HMP Wandsworth, in South West London, had been suspended.
The prison is operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service and is one of the largest in the UK.
Over the years, there have been some notable prisoners including Charles Bronson – now known as Charles Arthur Salvador – Gary Glitter, and Ronnie Kray.
Julian Assange was remanded in custody at HMP Wandsworth in December 2010 after being refused bail prior to an extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court.
He was later released on bail after another appeal.
Recent reports claimed that the prison was “crumbling, overcrowded, vermin-infested."
Prisoners even told inspectors they have been forced to go for days – and sometimes weeks – without time in the open air.
One group of prisoners at the jail were described as walking “blinking into the sunlight” after spending more than a week indoors, officials found during an unannounced inspection in September.
