Nine-year sentences were given to:

* Michael Westwood, 23, from Birmingham

* Benjamin Daws, 24, from Nottingham

* John Thomas Lambert, 23, from Sutton on Sea, Lincs

Does anyone have any contact details for these guys?

Have you tried asking the Prisoners Advice Service. ADDRESS. Unit 210 Hatton Square 16-16a Baldwins

Gardens EC1N 7RJ. Usually very helpful.

It seems several prisoners are now suing the Home Office as they were traumatised by the riot:

Either they are swinging the lead, or this really was a biggie!
