The Hunts Post has been given an exclusive preview of a poster campaign to be launched at Littlehey Prison next week to deter people from trafficking drugs.
Four posters have been commissioned by the HM Prisons Service Drug Strategy in partnership with the National Offender Management Service.
Copies of the posters have been sent to Littlehey Prison for the launch on Tuesday.
Philip Bowyer, area drug dog
co-ordinator, who helped to design them, said: "This is the first time a poster campaign has been used to try to prevent people from taking drugs into prisons.
"We want to get a clear message across to people that anyone involved in drugs trafficking will be prosecuted and could end up in prison."
