Smugglers use drone in attempt to smuggle contraband into UK prison
Bedfordshire Police have confirmed that smugglers attempted to use a drone to send drugs, screwdrivers, a knife and a mobile phone to inmates at a high-security prison.
The package containing the contraband was only spotted by staff after the remote-controlled aircraft became entangled in barbed wire surrounding Bedford Prison.
This is believed to be the first attempt to use a drone for smuggling a package into a UK prison.
HM Inspectorate of Prisons has already warned that preventing the trafficking of unauthorised substances is one of the biggest challenges that jail guards face.
