A restaurant run by prisoners in Cardiff cost almost £400,000 to set up, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
Wales Online report:
A restaurant staffed by Cardiff Prison convicts cost taxpayers more than £380,000 to refurbish, it has been revealed.
The Clink opened to paying customers in a building adjacent to the prison last September, offering prisoners the opportunity to work in a professional catering environment.
Details released by the Prison Service following a request made under the Freedom of Information Act show that both Cardiff Prison and Frankland Prison in Durham contributed to the development of The Clink in Cardiff.
