A former Victorian prison that is now an octagonal-shaped, three-storey house is up for sale for £1.5 million.

The 'Octagon House' in Beverley, East Yorkshire, was a prison during the Victorian era before being converted in the last 19th century and renovated in 1987 to become this unique six bedroom house.
