PROTESTERS outside Grafton Jail have won another battle in the war to have the decision to downsize the jail overturned.

Late yesterday afternoon, the fleet of prison trucks that arrived at the weekend to take away the remaining jail inmates was seen South of Kempsey, heading back to Sydney.

All but one was empty.

Assistant general secretary of the Public Service Association Shane O'Brien said that should signal the end of the immediate threat to remove prisoners from the jail which prompted the formation of a picket line outside the jail on Saturday.

"We're not taking anything for granted," Mr O'Brien said last night.

"We'll maintain the picket line at the jail tonight and see what happens tomorrow," he said.
