If you can help please contact Suffolk Police or your nearest police station using the national police number 101.

  • Why do we have prisons they are a camp where you can have the life of luxury free on the state. It's just ridiculous who thought of an open prison. Who would put a murderer or a violent person in an open prison

  • Again! I expect he will return after the weekend break then hopefully the authorities will see sense and put him in a closed prison

  • I suspect this man has a more serious background. You would not normally receive a life sentence for those offences if they were his first conviction. No mention of how long he had been inside. If our open prisons are full of serious offenders, what sort of offenders are in the secure prisons?

  • What a joke..How can it be called an "Open Prison"?? Surely Prison should mean prison? Slopping out & bread & water! Oh hold on, I forgot it's about the convict's Human Rights being affected & we wouldn't want to upset the PC brigade would we! If this country was a sick dog you would take it to the vets to be put down.
