An Auckland Prison guard has allegedly been stabbed by three inmates.

The inmates used "improvised weapons" in an unprovoked attack at the Paremoremo jail on Saturday night that appears to be gang related, Corrections NZ said in a tweet.

The prison guard was released from hospital shortly after the incident.

The three inmates were also taken to hospital with two being returned to the jail on Saturday night.

Corrections NZ said its management and staff were supporting the injured officer.
