Two prisoners are on the roof at a Greater Manchester prison, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has confirmed.

A MoJ spokesperson said both men went on the roof on Monday morning at HMP Buckley Hall, a category C prison near Rochdale.

The prison opened in 2000 as a private jail for women but has since reverted to a Prison Service owned men's jail.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said police had been made aware of the incident.
