Inside cushy HMP Low Newton ‘where Lucy Letby will die’ as she’s caged for life for her wicked crimes

THIS is the cushy prison where killer nurse Lucy Letby faces spending the rest of her life after being told she’ll die behind bars.

She is expected to be caged at maximum-security HMP Low Newton in County Durham, where prisoners have included fellow serial murderer Rose West.

Inmates there have included extremist Roshonara Choudhry, who stabbed MP Stephen Timms in 2010, and Tracey Connelly, the mum of Baby P who was abused and died in Tottenham, north London.

Also imprisoned there have been Mairead Philpott after she, along with her husband Mick, started a fire that killed six of her children in 2012 – as well as Karen Matthews, who faked the kidnapping of her daughter Shannon.

At the prison, inmates have the chance to pet sheep and goats and look after a rabbit and birds – all in a bid to keep them “calm”, a report by the Independent Monitoring Boards (IMB) has revealed.

And the prison boasts a shop where inmates can buy clothing.

Parts of the prison allow inmates to decorate their own rooms – while pink towelling and beauty products are on offer.

Letby’s horrific crimes were unmasked during a nearly 10-month trial where it was revealed she also attempted to kill six other newborns.

She used insulin and air to inject newborns in a year-long killing spree while working on the neo-natal ward at the Countess of Chester Hospital in Cheshire.

Letby, 33, was today given a whole life tariff for murder, which means she will never be released.

She is expected to serve her sentence at HMP Low Newton.

An alternative option is being sent to HMP Bronzefield in Ashford in Surrey, the largest female prison in Europe.

Other female serial killers given whole life orders include not only West but also Joanna Dennehy and Moors Murderer Myra Hindley.

West and Dennehy are among the inmates to have spent time at Low Newton, which was built in 1965.

It became an all-female maximum-security prison 33 years later while also housing young offenders.

Shameless Letby today refused to attend Manchester Crown Court as the judge handed down his sentence – prompting families’ anger.

There were also tears in court as the brave relatives of Letby’s victims read powerful victim impact statements.

Experts have said Letby’s possible motives included an “obsession” with a doctor at the hospital and enjoyment of a sick “thrill”.
