Virtual reality environment helps treat offenders

25 June 2013 Last updated at 20:12 BST

Offenders with psychological and behavioural problems are to be treated with a new virtual reality system, which puts them through a range of challenging scenarios, in a safe environment.

The system, called Pisces, has been designed by a virtual reality company called Xenodu from Hertfordshire, in conjunction with the medical school at Norwich's University of East Anglia.

It is about to be used at the Broadland Clinic, a secure unit for up to 24 patients, near Norwich.
