Prison nurse jailed

A prison nurse who had an affair with a dangerous rapist serving life was jailed for three years today.

A judge told Karen Cosford she'd fallen under the spell of an evil man. Cosford sent Brian McBride intimate text messages on a smuggled mobile phone - and a love letter hidden in a bag of sugar.

Three other prison workers were also jailed for their parts in concealing the affair.
