THE ex-wife of former politican Chris Huhne is to give an insight into life in prison at a talk in Hay-on-Wye.

Vicky Pryce, who served two months of an eight-month sentence for perverting the course of justice, will be at the Hay Festival Winter Weekend on Saturday, November 30.

She will be talking about her book Prisonomics, which analyses the economic and human costs of imprisoning women.

The three-day festival, which runs from November 29 to December 1, will also feature explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the QI writing team, comedian Marcus Brigstocke and a storytelling version of the Royal Shakespeare Company's new production Peter Pan.
