Describe the precautions taken by the prison officers to prevent Evans from escaping.
During Evans' O-level German test, special precautions were taken by the prison staff to prevent him from escaping. The test was scheduled to be taken in his own cell and a parson from St. Mary Mags was called to invigilate and to keep the prisoner incommunicado during the exam. Evans was placed in the heavily guarded Recreational Block. There were two locked doors between his cell and the yard, which boasted of a high wall. Moreover, all the prison officers were also on high alert. The Governor got a microphone installed in Evans’ cell, while Stephens kept a hawk’s eye on Evans. Two prison officers, Mr. Jackson and Mr. Stephens, thoroughly checked his cell for any sign of a possible escape. Even his razor, nail filer and nail scissors were taken away.
