Britain's prisons watchdog published a shocking report today detailing cases where dying inmates were wrongly chained up.
One in 10 prisoners who died of natural causes between 2007 and 2012 were inappropriately restrained, Prisons and Probation Ombudsman Nigel Newcomen found.
In one case a man with terminal cancer who had been in jail for decades died while handcuffed to a prison officer - despite being short of breath and unable to move far from his bed.
Mr Newcomen, who investigates all inmate deaths, said prisons were struggling to balance security with dignity.
The Prison Reform Trust said the "disturbing" report should prompt ministers to review inmates' treatment.
