DANCING LESSONS at Blundeston Prison, near Lowestoft, Suffolk, in which inmates help local handicapped children by partnering them, are praised by Judge Stephen Tumin, the Chief Inspector of Prisons, in a report published today.

Twice a week, children who have Down's Syndrome, cerebral palsy or severe learning difficulties have been visiting the jail for dancing lessons. Judge Tumin said it was an 'unusual and exciting community project' and inspectors were impressed by the 'concentration and commitment of the prisoners'.
