Some prisoners are living and sleeping in toilets because of jail overcrowding, a report says.
HM Inspectorate of Prisons found Doncaster jail held almost 200 more inmates than it had been intended for.
Two-man cells had been turned into three-man cells by putting an extra bed in the toilet area.
Meanwhile, a separate report from the Commons justice committee says the government's sentencing policies are adding to overcrowding in prisons.
