STUDENTS got a taste of prison life during an event at Colne Valley High Specialist Arts College.
Year nine pupils took part in a crime and safety awareness day organised by the charity Prison Me No Way.
They took part in eight different workshops which encouraged them to think about the consequences of crime.
They included visits from people who have been in prison, who spoke about life behind bars and the effect it had on them and their families, and an opportunity to visit the Cell Van, an authentic prison cell provided by the Prison Service.
Workshops on drugs and their effect and arson and its consequences, by West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, were also offered.
Schools liaison officer PC Angie Lister, one of the trustees of the charity, said the day was a unique learning experience which aimed to make pupils think twice before getting involved in criminal activity which could affect their lives forever.
