Lee Rigby’s killer and hate preacher Anjem Choudary will be among first inmates of jihadi jail within a prison to stop spread of extremism behind bars

  • Dangerous jihadists will be locked up in three special ‘prisons within prisons’
  • Up to 28 Muslim extremists will be caged in specialist ‘separation centres’
  • It is hoped that putting them together will help tackle radicalisation in jail
  • Inmates are now housed in a separate centre within HMP Frankland in Durham
  • Two other centres, which are expected to be at HMP Full Sutton near York and at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire, are due to open in the coming months
