Stuart Houghton from Wolverton first entered HMP Woodhill in July last year when he began a five-year prison sentence. But he has a wide range of allergies, which are so severe that he can go into anaphylactic shock if someone in the vicinity is eating fruit.
His family claim that his health has deteriorated because of the poor dietary choices on offer, saying he has lost five-and-a-half stone during his time inside.
Sister Victoria Gilham said: “In Woodhill he was told that they have to provide him with one hot meal a day, but their determination of ‘a meal’ was either dry spaghetti with boiled chicken that’s uncooked in the middle, boiled rice with boiled chicken, or boiled rice with baked beans. So for six months his diet was rice, spaghetti or beans.
