Prison staff drove 40 miles to buy £3,500 worth of takeaway curries for Muslim inmates
Muslim prisoners at a maximum security jail were treated to £3,500 of takeaway curries to mark a religious festival.
Some 200 inmates at Whitemoor prison near March in Cambridgeshire had meals worth around £18 each after complaining about the quality of jail food.
Staff, who also tucked into the meals, drove 40 miles to pick them up from a takeaway in Peterborough.
The meals were bought at the end of October this year to celebrate Eid, a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
