Prison authorities are urgently investigating how Edinburgh inmates managed to access the internet and post nude photos of themselves.
The offenders are believed to have used mobile phones to upload bizarre racy snaps to Facebook and Instagram.
Several prisoners are pictured sitting naked in the prison’s kitchen sink.
One video shows an inmate lining up to be punched by someone whom the Daily Record believes is John Reid, imprisoned in 2010 after inadvertently killing a man with one punch.
In social media posts, the jailbirds brag about how easy it was to get online.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Prison Service said: “The possession of a mobile phone in prison is a criminal offence. If we receive information to suggest that prisoners are in possession of such devices, we will take all appropriate action and report it to the relevant authorities.”
