The new Governor of Mountjoy Prison has introduced a 'zero drugs policy' at the country's largest prison.

In his first interview since he took up the post six weeks ago, Ned Whelan said his objective was to close-off all avenues bringing drugs, mobile phones, weapons and other contraband into the prison.

Three quarters of Mountjoy's 700 inmates have taken drugs.
