Updated: Mar 15

Some 18 female guards at one single jail were fired for having affairs with inmates.

The sexual relationships took place at HMP Berwyn, in Wrexham, Wales, over the last six years.

Three of the women ended up in court and were jailed, and the rest were revealed through Freedom of Information requests from The Mirror.

Jennifer Gavan, 27, was jailed for eight months in December after smuggling a mobile phone for her lover Alex Coxon, 25, so she could send photos of herself to him via Snapchat.

She was also caught kissing him during the relationship that went on from April to July 2020.

The officer pleaded guilty to misconduct in public office after she accepted £150 to bring in the phone.

In 2019, Gunn was jailed for one year after having a fling with ‘dangerous’ inmate Khuram Razaq, 29.
