Jail throws £10,000 down the pan

A prison is spending £10,000 on "hole in the ground" toilets because some foreign inmates hate sitting down when they go.
The jail, where 90% of inmates are from abroad, has been flooded with complaints from prisoners who want to squat.
So a new toilet facility is being built in a Canterbury jail, Kent, at taxpayers' expense.
Each loo has a hole and a ceramic tray with no seat and non-slip flooring, like those found in continental roadside services and bars.
An insider said: "It is a joke really. We have modern, smart toilet facilities here but we have to spend another £10,000 for holes in the ground.
Prison governor Chris Bartlett said: "We are a very diverse establishment. The reality is that vast tracts of the world don't use a standard European toilet."
Deputy head of residential services Dave Lambourne said the loos are being fitted "out of courtesy", mainly for the use of prisoners from the Far East.
