Pupils learn about life in prison

Pupils at secondary schools in the Isle of Man are being given a rude awakening to the stark reality of life in prison.

Guards from the Island's jail have launched an initiative called 'Prison Me No Way', which features a dramatisation of what happens when a new inmate begins his sentence.

Mike Speers hopes it will remove some common mis-conceptions of what prison life is really like (audio file attached):
