Protesters gathered outside HMP Peterborough to demand the freedom of Melanie Shaw, who they believe has been wrongly locked up.

The group of around 30, believe Melanie Shaw is being imprisoned unfairly on a charge of arson with intent to endanger life.

A spokesman for Sodexo, who run the Saville Road prison, said: “There was a peaceful protest outside HMP Peterborough on Sunday, 5 October which did not disrupt the running of the prison.”
