Tea, coffee and sandwich sales have rocketed at H.M.P. Isle of Wight Visitor Centre due to a G.P.S. mix up.
A recent initiative by the Isle of Wight Tourist Institute, hoping to sell the Island as a holiday destination and not just an amalgamation of prisons and Residential Homes has backfired as hundreds of would be holidaymakers have been mistakenly directed to the Class B prison facility.
The tourists have reported being searched for files in cakes, drugs and alcohol and a minority have reported being locked up with convicts.
The Isle of Wight has a plethora of nice tea rooms and retirement bungalows.
Buckets and spades are available at souvenir shops as well as postcards and chocolates. Flowers are conveniently sold to take to serving prisoners.
