Royal recognition for Buckinghamshire prison worker

A Buckinghamshire prison worker has received royal recognition for her work. 

Laura Jacobs, a forensic psychologist at Her Majesty's Prison Grendon near Aylesbury, was nominated by ten inmates at the prison. 

She has been recognised for her contribution to the prison's therapeutic community. 

Testimonials from prisoners described her as "an incredible woman who changed their lives forever."

The awards, hosted by the Butler Trust charity and presented by its Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, Anne, were due to take place at St James's Palace. 

However, due to the lockdown these were unable to take place instead the winners have been recognised by an online ceremony. 

They will still meet Princess Anne, as the plan is to have her Royal Highness present the awards in person at a later date.
