Police force to issue compasses to point Muslims to Mecca
Muslim prisoners are to be given compasses so they can face towards the holy city of Mecca when praying in their cells under plans announced by a police force.
Norfolk Police Authority put forward the plan in its Custody Visitors Committee report, following a trial at Bethel Street Police Station in Norwich where compass points correctly aligned were painted on the ceilings of cells.
