A demonstration has been held outside a jail calling for an end to imprisoning pregnant women and new mothers.

Former inmates and women with children were among those at HMP Bronzefield in Surrey on Saturday, on the third anniversary of a baby's death there.

One protester, Anna Harley, who gave birth in jail, said it was a trauma that "will live with me for ever".

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) said custody "was already a last resort" and it had made "significant improvements".

Janey Starling, co-director of Level Up, said despite the death of two babies in prison in the past three years, "very little has changed".
