Sheffield primary pupils are set to find themselves behind bars – as part of a new programme designed to teach youngsters about crime and its consequences.

A mobile cell is to be taken around schools with nine to 11-year-olds then shut inside, giving them a brief taste of prison life.

The HMP NOT-4-Me project is targeted at Year 5 and 6 pupils because 10 is the current age of criminal responsibility.
