Visit: Prince at prison yesterday

The Prince of Wales met Muslim inmates at Leeds Prison and had a woolly chat with a rock star during a visit to Yorkshire.

Charles went into the Victorian jail to meet inmates and staff involved in a project to prepare young prisoners for life after their release before meeting Blur's Alex James at a woollen factory.

James was supporting the Campaign for Wool, launched by the prince in 2010, and said Charles was easily the best dressed man he knew.

James said: "I think he must be a shoo-in for best dressed man of the year."

Earlier, Charles talked to Muslim inmates who are involved in a project developed by the his Mosaic mentoring initiative.
