Pagan inmates to observe festival

Pagan prisoners in Britain are to be given time off work duties to allow them to observe a religious festival on the day of Halloween.

Pagans observe the Celtic New Year's Eve on 31 October, which they see as Britain's indigenous New Year event.

The Home Office, which agreed to the move, said it was committed to treating all prisoners with decency, which included respecting all religions.

There are more than 300 registered Pagans in Britain's prisons.
