Eighteen female guards have been fired for having illicit affairs with inmates at a cell in Britain.
It was discovered that the relationships took place over the past six years at HMP Berwyn, Britain’s biggest prison, Daily News Report has learnt.

Chairman of the Prison Officers’ Association, Mark Fairhurst, blamed the relationships on the hiring of “the wrong kind of women.”

He told the Mirror, “Staff being recruited don’t have face-to-face interviews… it’s all done on Zoom. A lot of people getting these jobs don’t have enough life experience and are susceptible to conditioning from prisoners.”

Among the guards guilty of initiating relationships with prisoners at the £250 million super-prison, which houses Category C adult male offenders, were Jennifer Gavan, 27; Ayshea Gunn, 27; and Emily Watson, 26.

Jennifer Gavan was jailed for eight months in December following her relations with prisoner Alex Coxon, 25.

The relationship came just one year after fellow officer Ayshea Gunn, 27, had a fling with ‘dangerous’ inmate Khuram Razaq, 29.

A search of Gunn’s bedroom revealed snaps of the pair k*ssing and hugging also with mobile phone pictures taken in his cell. She was subsequently jailed for one year at Mold Crown Court in 2019.
