An investigation is under way after a remand prisoner was found dead at a Teesside jail.

Andrew Wilkes was discovered hanging in his cell at Holme House in Stockton on Saturday.

The 32-year-old was being held on remand at the category B institution, charged with theft.

The Prison Service said that as with all deaths in custody the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman would be carrying out an inquiry.

In 2011 a report by the inspector of prisons described Holme House as a "challenging" prison to run, and the outcomes it delivered for prisoners were a real achievement.
