Prison 'pampering' move angers MP

PUBLISHED June 1, 2005

Inmates at a new mixed prison in Cambridgeshire are to be offered massages and relaxation treatments.

Operators of the 840-place Category B prison at Peterborough, United Kingdom Detention Services (UKDS), want to recruit two holistic therapists.
Reflexology, aromatherapy and Indian head massage would be offered.
Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson has accused the prison of pampering inmates and sending out the wrong message to hard-working families.
