UK: Whitemoor prison terror attack inmates handed life terms

Two serving prisoners have had their jail terms extended to life for the attempted murder of a prison officer inside a maximum security jail.

Brusthom Ziamani, 25, and Baz Hockton, 26, stabbed “kind and helpful” Neil Trundle at HMP Whitemoor, Cambridgeshire, on 9 January.

The two men were convicted of attempted murder at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.

The judge, Mrs Justice May, told Ziamani his “adherence to extremist ideology clearly persists”.

The assault on Mr Trundle is the first terrorist attack to occur inside a British jail.
