The 27-year-old wife of a so­lic­i­tor is teach­ing French to pris­on­ers in Maid­stone Jail, Kent. She is French-born Mrs Co­lette O’Fla­herty, mother of three young daugh­ters, who also teaches French at a sec­ondary school. When she went in the prison for her first les­son more than 40 pris­on­ers saw her and asked if they could en­rol, but only a dozen of them were lucky. Mrs O’Fla­herty said: “The pris­on­ers are very well be­haved – even bet­ter than the chil­dren at school.”
