Huntley "Attacker" Goes On Trial

The trial of a prisoner accused of murdering an inmate and attempting to kill Soham murderer Ian Huntley begins in Hull today.

35-year-old Damien Fowkes is accused of slashing Huntley's throat in Frankland prison, Durham in March last year.

He allegedly inflicted a seven inch wound on Huntley's neck using a weapon made out of a toothbrush and a razor blade.

Huntley was jailed for life in 2002 for the murders of schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in Soham in Cambridgeshire.

Fowkes is also accused of strangling to death fellow inmate Colin Hatch at Full Sutton prison near York in February.

He is due to go on trial at Hull Crown Court
