A PRISON protester vowed to keep up her campaign at women's jails until current laws are changed.
Pauline Campbell's vigil outside New Hall women's prison in Flockton yesterday followed the death of Huddersfield woman Victoria Robinson, 26, there on February 2 this year.
Ms Robinson, who was awaiting trial on charges of making threats to kill, was found hanging by prison staff.
It was later revealed she was on suicide watch at the time.
Mrs Campbell, 57, whose own 18-year-old daughter Sarah died in HMP Styal in Cheshire in 2003, said the 14 deaths of women in prison last year was the highest number ever.
She added: "The crisis in women's prisons is deepening.
"There have now been 26 deaths since January 2003.
"Prisons owe a legal duty of care to all inmates."
She added: "While women continue to die at the hands of the state I shall continue to campaign. I have a democratic right to peaceful protest."
Mrs Campbell is due to face charges of obstructing a highway later this month at Rochdale Magistrates' Court following a similar protest at HMP Buckley Hall prison near Rochdale.
She added: "I'm expecting to be found not guilty of the charges and I will continue to protest."
