A 37-YEAR-OLD woman has died after being found hanging at New Hall Prison, near Flockton.
Mandy Pearson is the third inmate to die at the prison so far this year.
And she is the 12th woman prisoner to die in custody in the UK in 2004.
The Home Office said Ms Pearson lives in West Yorkshire, but would not narrow it down any further.
She was found hanging in a room in the New Hall's health care unit on Monday.
Staff battled to save her life and she was taken to Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield, but she died at 4.10pm on Tuesday.
She had been serving five months for assaulting a police officer and was sentenced to the jail term by Bradford magistrates on June 7.
