Anyone who opposes plans to build Britain’s largest prison near Rainham can have their say next month.

Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas, who campaigned against proposals for a smaller prison when they were unveiled in 2009, has organised a public meeting at Rainham Village Primary School on Saturday, July 13, from 10am.

If built, the facility at Beam Park – just over the border into Dagenham – would hold 2,000 prisoners.

There is no parking available as the entry barrier is broken.
