A prisoner has been filmed collapsing to the floor after he apparently took Spice that he won in a fight in a cell.
Footage obtained by Metro.co.uk shows the prisoner shake violently as he holds a makeshift pipe in his hand in the cell.
And he suddenly collapses to the floor as a laughing inmate records him on a mobile phone, which are banned in British jails.
The prisoner lies motionless on the ground for a further 20 seconds in the video, said to have been filmed in Category B jail HMP Garth near Leyland, Lancashire.
The video was leaked from jail and on Sunday shared on a Facebook group, described as a place where thousands of convicts ‘meet up’.
It followed a further clip in which the same inmate is seen fighting another prisoner. It’s alleged that the men were fighting for the illegal drug Spice, which the shirted inmate won and allegedly later took in the second clip.
A crowd of grinning convicts gathers to encourage the inmates as they exchange blows in the one-minute clip.
The prisoner believed to be filming the fight can be heard shouting ‘ding, ding’, ‘go on’ and ‘do you give up’ in a strong Liverpool accent.
Others shout ‘hit him’ and encourage the duo.
Former inmates in the Facebook group — some of whom claim to know the pair in the clip — claimed they were ‘scrapping like kids’ for Spice.
More than 800 prisoners are imprisoned at HMP Garth. Drugs and violence were identified as problems in HM Chief Inspector of Prisons’ last inspection in January this year.
‘Levels of violence in the prison had increased substantially with many incidents linked to drugs, gangs and debt.
‘Linked to the violence, it was clear the prison had a major drug problem,’ the report read.
Spice is an illegal drug which can appear to freeze people who smoke it, or make them behave like zombies.
People who take it are sometimes described as resembling the ‘walking dead’.
Spice is a combination of a mixture of potent chemicals and herbs. It can be smoked or made into a tea.
Ministry of Justice has been approached for comment.
