'UK's first' prison sensory garden inspires inmates' new career

Inmates at Magilligan prison, County Londonderry, are tackling mental health issues in what is believed to be the UK's first sensory prison garden.

The facility is in the Care and Supervision Unit (CSU) where inmates can spend up to 23 hours a day in isolation.

It has inspired two prisoners to plan to launch their own gardening business upon release.
