Islington exhibition goes behind the walls of Holloway Prison

Stories of the women who were held at Holloway prison are being told as part of a new exhibition at Islington Museum.

Until its closure in 2016, it was Western Europe's largest female jail.

During its time it held suffragettes and Ruth Ellis, the last women in the UK to be executed.

'Echoes of Holloway Prison' runs at the Islington Museum, until 8 October.
