The nick is having a mad drive on health and safety, the Fire Officer working himself to the bone to piss us off.
The latest rule is that we must remove the draught-proofing we improvise around our cell doors. As these doors have a gap approaching half an inch all around, and our windows are ancient and ill fitting, this draught proofing is not just a crazy affectation.
And - tell me if I'm wrong here - if there was a fire on either side of the door, isn't preventing either smoke or oxygen moving a good thing? Just a thought.
