'Ere Fletch they've only gone and got it wrong about St Albans again


With the title 'Ere Fletch they've only gone and listed the Scrubs: HMP Wormwood officially one Britain's finest buildings today's Daily Mail announces that Wormwood Scrubs Prison has been given Grade II listed status. There is a picture of Ronnie Barker and the caption The London prison was made famous as the entrance to HMP Slade in the BBC series Porridge starring Ronnie Barker. The Daily Telegraph website carries a similar story. The trouble is that as any Albanian knows it was the former St Albans prison which provided the backdrop. Can you believe anything you read in the press these days?
