Teabags Banned from Jurby Prison

Inmates Caught Smoking The Contents

There are reports that what some of us see as a daily essential household item – teabags have been banned from the Isle of Man Prison.


Tea bags have been forbidden at Jurby.


Prison Guards have taken the harsh action after crafty inmates were caught using the contents to make their own cigarettes.


Smoking is banned at the prison, the only one in Europe to have a smoking ban, so inmates have been forced the kick the habit.


It’s alleged that prison guards caught inmates smoking in the cells and were forced to seize the remaining teabags.
