Ray Hadley has launched a sensational attack on Gladys Berejiklian over her failings within the New South Wales Government.

It comes after two inmates escaped from Kempsey jail on the New South Wales mid-north coast on Friday.

The pair escaped from a minimum security section of the jail and allegedly stole a black 2005 Toyota Camry Sportivo before fleeing the prison.

A listener has exclusively revealed to Ray that a civilian contractor alerted a senior correctional officer two hours before the pair went missing, that they were wandering around the officer carpark.

Up to five people should’ve have been monitoring the two inmates, but all failed to notice them missing.

The listener tells Ray “the escape is a pure example of incompetence at the most basic correctional centre security level”.

“Someone will die in Kempsey gaol very soon, it is out of control.”

Meanwhile, murderer Kelvin Wilmot has been segregated after being involved in an altercation with another inmate on Saturday. He’ll be moved from Kempsey to a maximum security prison.

“Kelvin Willmott is a dreadful, dreadful creature who stabbed a man to death almost decapitating the person,” says Ray.

“I’m sick to the back teeth of talking about the New South Wales prison system under Peter Severin.

“I’ve already told you (Gladys Berejiklian) to get rid of the marine parks. What you need to do Gladys, is show that your prisons are tough, no-nonsense institutions.

“You need to get rid of the social reformer that runs them, Peter Severin.”

“We’ve had the marine parks fiasco under watch. We’ve got the Return and Earn fiasco.

“I went past one at Kellyville yesterday, it’s a dump, it’s a dump site!

“That’s your baby… You need to take control.

“You’re a laughing stock Premier!”
