PRISONERS have been disciplined after nipping out to a Suffolk pub for a farewell drink before sneaking back to their jail loaded with bottles, it emerged today.
But their night out at the local was spoiled after police were informed of their antics.
Three inmates from Hollesley Bay open unit – dubbed by some media as "Holiday Bay" and made famous by Jeffrey Archer's spell there – were eventually caught out after their unauthorised night out.
Today, the Prison Service said it has disciplined two of the those involved.
The pair, who were in Hollesley's Shepherd and Dog pub, shared a going-away drink with another inmate on the night before he was due to get his freedom.
