Ian Huntley has had his throat slashed in prison

"Soham murderer Ian Huntley has had his throat slashed in prison, Sky sources say.

The Ministry of Justice said he was attacked in Frankland Prison, County Durham, where he is serving two life sentences for murdering schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt said Huntley was taken to hospital after being attacked by a fellow inmate with a home-made implement.

A Ministry spokesman said: "A prisoner at HMP Frankland was assaulted by another prisoner at about 3.25pm on Sunday March 21.

"The prisoner was taken to outside hospital for treatment. His condition is not thought to be life-threatening."

Huntley was convicted of murdering the 10-year-old girls in Soham, Cambridgeshire, in 2002.

Brunt said: "Although his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, it does sound quite a serious attack - serious enough for him to be taken outside the prison to hospital rather than being treated by medical staff inside the prison.

"As for the weapon, it's fairly common for a plastic a toothbrush to be melted and a razor blade inserted in the end - pretty terrifying.

It's difficult to tell if he was slashed more than once."

Today's assault is not the first time Huntley has been attacked in prison.

An inmate threw boiling water on him while he was on the health care wing at the high-security Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire in September 2005.

HMP Frankland is a Category A high security men's prison.

The murder of the two girls sent shockwaves across the country during the summer of 2002.

Huntley, a caretaker at the secondary school in Soham, and his then girlfriend Maxine Carr, a teaching assistant in Holly and Jessica's junior school class, told police that they knew nothing of the circumstances surrounding the girls' disappearance.

But it emerged at their trial at the Old Bailey in December 2003 that Huntley had met Holly and Jessica as they walked past his home, enticed them inside and killed them before hiding their remains.

Huntley was given two life terms after being convicted of the girls' murders.

Carr was jailed after being convicted of perverting the course of justice and has now been released from prison."

Soham Killer Back In Jail After Throat Cut
8:23am UK, Monday March 22, 2010

Tom Bonnett, Sky News Online

Soham murderer Ian Huntley has returned to prison from hospital after his throat was slashed by a fellow inmate.

The 36-year-old was attacked in Frankland Prison in County Durham where he is serving two life sentences for killing schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

Huntley's throat was reportedly slashed with a makeshift knife and he was found by prison staff lying in a pool of blood.

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt, who broke the story last night, said those who found him thought he was going to die.

"It was a very serious attack," he said.

"No details of the weapon, but it's common for a plastic toothbrush to be melted and a razor blade inserted in the end - it makes a pretty terrifying weapon."


There's a pecking order in prison and certain people are considered fair game.

The Prison Service said the attack was not life threatening.

"A prisoner at HMP Frankland was assaulted by another prisoner at about 3.25pm on Sunday March 21," a spokesman for the service said.

"The prisoner was taken to outside hospital for treatment but has now returned to prison."

Huntley was convicted of killing Holly and Jessica, who were both 10, in December 2003.

The girls disappeared in Soham, Cambridgeshire, in August 2002.

Huntley was a caretaker at the local secondary school and his then girlfriend Maxine Carr was a teaching assistant in Holly and Jessica's class.

The couple initially told police they knew nothing of the circumstances surrounding the girls' disappearance.

But it emerged at their trial that Huntley had met Holly and Jessica as they walked past his home, enticed them inside and killed them before hiding their remains.

Huntley was convicted of their murders while Carr was convicted of perverting the course of justice.

She has now been released from jail.

It is not the first time Huntley has been attacked in prison.

Boiling water was thrown on him by an inmate while he was at the high-security Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire in September 2005.

He was moved to HMP Frankland, a Category A high security men's prison, in 2008.

Huntley has also tried to commit suicide three times while in prison.
