Prisoners in Mother's Day drive
Prisoners have been making floral baskets
A group of prisoners at a Northern Ireland jail have been making floral arrangements to raise money for charity, the Prison Service has said.

The women prisoners in Hydebank Wood, Belfast, have made up over 200 floral arrangements for Mother's Day on Sunday over the last few weeks.

The bouquets and baskets were sold to visitors and staff.

The women expect to raise about 2,000 and donations will be made to Women's Aid and a local cancer charity.

The project follows a project at Christmas when the women made table arrangements and yuletide logs for the Cancer Fund for Children.

The charity sold the pieces at St George's Christmas Market.
