Ian Huntley to sue over prison attack

Soham murderer Ian Huntley is to sue the Prison Service after he was attacked by an inmate.

The 36-year-old former school caretaker's throat was slashed in March at Frankland Prison in County Durham.

Huntley, who murdered schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in 2002, will claim the service has failed in its duty of care towards him.

Helena Lee reports.
