Norwich Prison's work scheme leads to job offers

A man who took part in a project to renovate houses on day release from prison has received two job offers.

Paul Sayer was serving a 10-year sentence for conspiracy to supply drugs at Norwich Prison, but has since been released.

He was part of a Britannia Enterprises scheme, which the Ministry of Justice said is the first of its kind.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: "The offenders lead on the project, work from day one to completion and then the scheme gives back to victims' charities once the house is sold."
