UK drug dealer/jailbird marries

Drug dealer Benjamin Connor has wed his sweetheart on the taxpayer dime, despite being 7 months into a 6 year stretch for trafficking cocaine.
He was escorted from HMP Humber, East Yorks, to Goole Register Office — the two-hour trip all paid for by the prison. “This rule is in place to visit dying relatives, not to go on a jolly. What next? Lags out for a round of golf? It is not government policy to let drug traffickers out for weddings!”

Pandemic restrictions mean there are an estimated 824,000 weddings on hold in the UK.
