Brunch is more to taste for lags

Daily Star - - NEWS -

STAR: Ron­nie in Por­ridge PRISON chiefs have re-branded lunch by call­ing it brunch to make it more ap­peal­ing to lags.

The idea has been brought in at Chelms­ford jail in Es­sex where Por­ridge, star­ring Ron­nie Barker, was filmed.

Many in­mates hardly eat any lunch, or just soggy sand­wiches, and live off items from the prison tuck shop.

Brunch is be­lieved to in­clude baguettes, sand­wiches, cheese on toast, pan­cake rolls, quiche, scram­bled eggs on toast, omelette and sausage rolls.

They are then given a hot din­ner, of­ten fish and chips, curry, shep­herd’s pie or a range of vege­tar­ian, ve­gan and halal dishes.

An in­spec­tor’s re­port re­vealed that the new brunch was very pop­u­lar.

But a prison source said that re-branding lunch was “daft and just a way to try and make it more ap­peal­ing to pris­on­ers”.

He said: “Lunch in pris­ons is of­ten a sad, soggy state of af­fairs.

“The sand­wiches are cold and soggy, which is quite a hard thing to achieve and the baguettes are usu­ally more like trun­cheons.”


PLANS to turn an ex-cruise liner into an 18-plus at­trac­tion with zom­bies chas­ing rev­ellers in Llan­erch-y-Mor, Flints, has been de­layed by a row over land use.
