UK - Prison chapel turned into mosque

First it was banning the English flag because it was offensive to Muslim inmates and now this.

A Christian chapel at Britain's largest jail is to be turned into a Mosque, it emerged last night.

A surge in Muslim inmates at London's Wandsworth Prison - where they now make-up almost a fifth of all prisoners - has left them without enough room to pray.

The Prison Service has responded by closing the Anglican chapel and telling Church of England convicts they must share with Roman Catholics.

A "surge in Muslim inmates"? Now that's interesting.
