Facelift machine helps tackle drugs problem in Liverpool prison
The amount of drugs being thrown over the fence into one prison is so high that warders have been forced to deploy a cherry picker to remove them - and of course, Facelift was the firm they chose to help them reach into every nook and cranny of the 60 ft. roof.
The Daily Mail reported that packages containing heroin and cannabis were cleared from the roof of HMP Altcourse in Liverpool - hurled there from the outside by friends and associates of inmates.
The hydraulic crane also recovered so-called 'legal highs' as well as 22 phones, three Sim cards and six chargers from the roof, contained in a total of 14 bubble-wrapped packages.
Dave Thompson, director of the Category B prison, said: 'These items were thrown over the prison walls by criminals on the outside and it required a cherry picker and staff to retrieve them from inaccessible rooftops.'
