Prison officers have been ordered to allow transsexual prisoners access to padded bras and make-up.
A detailed new policy document drawn up by Kenneth Clarke's Ministry of Justice sets out the rights of sex change inmates, saying they must be allowed to purchase "gender appropriate" clothing from a home shopping catalogue.
Jail warders, who are already required to address inmates by courtesy titles such as Mister, must call transsexual prisoners "Miss" or "Ms" under the new mandatory guidelines, which come into effect later this month.
I wonder if this applies in Scotland. If Tommy Sheridan comes out of jail in a cotton print dress, wearing lipstick, I will piss myself, laughing!
