So Ian Huntley, murderer of schoolgirls Holly Wells & Jessica Chapman, has failed on his second suicide attempt in prison.
Apparently, he was found collapsed in his cell having taken an overdose. Immediate assistance was summoned but nobody had any extra tablets, so, sadly, he was taken to hospital.
I guess there won’t be too many people sorry that he failed to do the job properly.
The general secretary of the Prison Officer’s Association was on TV today asking how his members could be expected to prevent suicide attempts by prisoners unless they were kept in a glass cage with no possessions & 24-hour monitoring.
I think he answered his own queston.
