They say it's a life sentence, but one couple couldn't be happier when they got married in a police cell.  Derek and Sandra Todd attached their ball and chain literally as they became the first to wed inside The Old Police Cells in Brighton, East Sussex, since it gained a license.<br />
<br />
The couple took 26 of their nearest and dearest by coach to the old prison, which served as the Brighton Borough's main police station for 137 years between 1830 and 1967, for the one of a kind ceremony behind bars.  The Old Prison Cells may not be the first place you would choose when picking out a wedding venue, especially considering that in 1844 Chief Constable Henry Solomon was murdered there by a prisoner.
