Charles Bronson Transfers To New Prison Full Of 'Funny F**kers'

Charles Bronson Transfers To New Prison Full Of 'Funny F**kers'

'Britain's most notorious prisoner' Charles Salvador has moved prison to a place where he probably isn't actually the most violent prisoner in the nick.

High-profile British criminal and artist Salvador - better known by his former name Charles Bronson - was transferred from the max-security prison HMP Wakefield to HMP Frankland, another Category A prison in County Durham, England.

HMP Wakefield is widely known as 'Monster Mansion' due to the number of murderers it holds - but HMP Frankland is pretty close, serving as the current home to Soham murderer Ian Huntley, Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe and Lee Rigby killer Michael Adebolajo. That lot make Bronson's crimes look tame in comparison.




According to the Daily Star, Bronson said in a letter to his friend Rod Harrison that he's already bumped into a few 'characters' and even saw some wildlife on the trip there.

"Bumped into a few characters - some funny fuckers here," Bronson is said to have written to his pal. "Grub's not bad - plenty of it."

"Seen a black stallion in a field on [the] way (what a beauty) - I'm gunna do an art of it later - it's in my mind, I won't forget it."


Harrison - who served as Bronson's best man at his wedding last November - wrote online that Charlie is in 'fine form - getting settled, not frustrated or upset'.

"I bet he adored seeing that stallion - and so happy that my husband is in good spirits," Bronson's wife Paula Williamson added online.

Bronson's transfer might make his married life more difficult - he is now a further 100 miles away from his ex-Coronation Street actress wife who lives in the city of Stoke-on-Trent.

The pair married in a secret ceremony at HMP Wakefield last year after getting engaged in February 2017. Williamson has previously said on the record that she would like to start a family with Bronson in the future.

Bronson is currently appealing his life sentence after passing a string of violence reduction courses in prison. He publicly renounced violence in 2007 and has since concentrated on his career as an artist.

The former bareknuckle boxer was given life in 1999 after taking a prison art teacher hostage, having spent over 40 years in prison on/off since first being locked up for armed robbery in 1974.

Just days after his wedding Bronson's application for parole was refused by the prison Parole Board, so he'll have to serve at least another two years. Maybe when they see the people he's living with, the Parole Board might change their minds?
