UK Jailhouse Rocks

EVERYBODY in the whole cell block was dancing to the jailhouse rock when a trainee barrister and his nephew paid tribute to Elvis at a Greater Manchester court. Legal eagle Jonathon Hogg astounded judges and ushers at Oldham County Court when he swapped his sober jacket and tie for silver sunglasses and a sparkly jumpsuit. But he and "Little Elvis", his 11-year-old nephew Gareth Halliwell, are unlikely to end up behind bars after their impromptu concert yesterday. They were helping court officials to celebrate the anniversary of The King's birthday - for Elvis would have been 70 years old today.

Jonathon said: "I was quaking in my blue suede shoes before the concert began. But I needn't have worried about getting in trouble - I had a very good defence."
