Charles Bronson Is Now A Lord After Son Buys Him A Title
The prisoner formerly known as Charles Bronson has been bought a title meaning he is now officially called Lord Charles Arthur Salvador.
The inmate's son George Barmby bought him a piece of land in Galloway, Scotland, costing £79.99 and allowing Salvador to call himself a Lord.
According to The Daily Star, the 67-year-old is chuffed with his new title, writing in a letter: "Says it all. Me a Lord. You can't make this up!
"It's something to be proud of, and grateful. It's got a nice ring to it, Lord Salvador."
A fancy-looking document states that he 'may henceforth and in perpetuity be known by the style and title of Lord and shall hereafter be known as Lord Charles Arthur Salvador'.
Bamby splashed out on the deed as a bit of a joke and says his dad is 'loving it'.
He told the newspaper: "It just started out as a joke. Dad was looking at land to buy for when he gets out.
"I saw an advert saying he could buy a tiny patch of land in west Scotland and get a title.
"He absolutely loved the idea of it, and the fact that people would have to call him 'Lord'.
"When he told the screws they didn't believe him, so when the document came through they put it up in his cell for him.
"Some of them call him that now for a laugh - and he is loving it."

"As I moved through security, I heard someone singing, 'Please release me, let me go.'
"I opened this door, I walked in, Charlie is stood on his hands upside down doing 100 press-ups in mid-air, singing this song, without even releasing any breath or anything.
"He jumps up, does a backflip, walks up to the bars in his cage and says, 'Georgie boy!'
"He put his arm through the bars and I was like, 'Do I touch him, what happens?'"
