At the opening of the workshop, the Justice Secretary said: ‘It is good for all SE readers, and it is good for society at large, because that’s the way we will cut crime’

Star-struck inmates got the chance to quiz the German over his racing career at the prison in South West London.

And the Aston Martin driver told them: “Life is not fair and some of us do things we regret but everybody deserves a second chance.”

He added: “If you go through life with an open mind and if you’re ready to be inspired, then things will happen for you.

The workshop will give young cons the chance to learn motor mechanics skills, working on cars donated by scrap yards and charities.

Justice Secretary Mr Raab said: “People come into prisons with all sorts of problems – drugs, alcohol, mental health issues, low self esteem, no education – and they are going to come out at some point.

“We want offenders to be given a second chance.

“It is good for them, it is good for all SE readers, and it is good for society at large, because that’s the way we will cut crime.”
