Britain's 'most dangerous prisoner'is now kept in solo prison after he injured four guards in a ferocious attackat the notorious Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire.
Charles Bronson has spent the last 36 years in jail for a long a series of voilent crimes.He first smeared all his naked body with butter so that the prison staff would have difficulty in tackling him.He then fought up to 12 warders in the gym area of Wakefield Prison before he was finally subdued by a team of specialist guards.One of the prisoner told about the incidence:
'He was naked and covered himself in butter so staff trying to restrain him could not take him down.
'He assaulted four before they sent in six members of the control and restraint team in to get him.'
The history of this dangerous prisoner is really interesting. He was originally jailed in 1974 for armed robbery.But then in jail a dozen hostage incidents, voilent assualts,criminal damage,false imprisonment, blackmailing and threatening cases have made him spend the rest of his life in jail.His real name is Michael Gordon Peterson but in 1987 he changed his name to Charles Bronson in homage to the star of the 'Death Wish' series of films.
In one of the incidents,in 1999 he kidnapped prison teacher Phil Danielson at Hull Prison and held him hostage for 40 hours while making various demands.Similarly he has staged rooftop protestsmany times due to which he was kept in solitary confinement several times.
Even a film based on his life was also released last year starring Tom Hard.The Wakefield Prison, also known as Monster Mansion is notorious for other serious inmates who are the murderers of Sarah Payne and police killer David Bieber.
