The damage bill for Greenough Regional Prison could be in the millions following this week‚Äôs riot, according to WA Premier Mark McGowan.
WA Police have since released images of the damage done to the prison during the incident, which saw 10 inmates escape the facility during the chaos on Tuesday evening.
Mr McGowan said the damage the inmates caused would likely cost the state millions, and was due to ‚Äúappalling‚ÄĚ behaviour.
‚ÄúThere was smoke damage, there was graffiti, there were fences knocked over – there was an extraordinary level of damage caused by the prisoners there.
‚ÄúThey are stupid, ignorant and appalling young men with what they’ve done and they’d just made the situation immeasurably worse for themselves and their families.
