Nun relics brought to HMP Wormwood Scrubs

wormwoodscrubsA slightly bizarre story from the BBC here. Bits of a nun who died in 1897 are being brought to our neighbours in jail today so that Catholic inmates can pay their respects. The nun was beatified (made a saint) by the church in Rome after she died.

I've written about the hidden lives of our imprisoned neighbours before, who I used to see going about their business over the walls from the maternity ward at next-door Queen Charlotte's hospital, but I don't think I realised quite how strange life was in there!
