* In August 2013 he was transferred from HMP Whitemoor to the John Howard Centre (JHC) secure unit, Hackney, London for a mental health assessment.

APPEAL FOR HELP WITH HIT AND RUN
INCIDENT: Police investigating what caused the death of a man in Smethwick on Saturday 23rd November believe he was hit by a large vehicle.
* The 75-year-old man was found lying in Beakes Road with multiple serious injuries at around 9.30pm - he was rushed to hospital but could not be saved and was pronounced dead hours later.
* Nobody has come forward to report a collision in the road that night and officers believe the man was the victim of a hit and run.
* Police believe that he was struck by possibly a 4x4 car or a van. Inspector Paul Bennett, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said: "Whoever was driving must have known they had hit a person but rather than stop to help hey left him in the road to die. The vehicle itself would have sustained collision damage and I want to hear from anyone who may have information that could lead us to the vehicle and driver involved. Have you seen a car or van parked in your neighbourhood with serious damage that isn't usually there? I would also appeal to garage repair owners to be wary of any vehicles that are brought in with a large amount of damage that the owner can't explain."
CONTACT: Anyone with information should call West Midlands Police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
COLD CASE: IAN GRANT
INCIDENT: Detectives have launched a fresh investigation into the cold case murder of Ian Grant in Cambridge - 18 years after his was killed.
* The 24-year-old was found dead on wasteland near Fulbourne Hospital in Cherry Hinton just after midnight on November 15, 1995.
* He had been shot in the head. He had been last seen at 8pm earlier that evening when he left his nearby flat in Speedwell Close. It is thought he was killed between 8pm and 10pm on November 14.
* His girlfriend's car had also been set alight two weeks prior to his murder. Detectives still believe that incident is linked to the killing.
* Now the Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit are renewing their appeal for information after fresh evidence emerged.
* Detective Chief Inspector Jon Hutchinson said: "We continually review unsolved murder investigations and believe we have made a significant breakthrough in this particular inquiry. As a result we are re-launching the investigation into Ian Grant's murder.Eighteen years is a long time and allegiances are likely to have changed during the passage of time since Ian was killed. Hopefully people will feel much more confident in coming forward and speaking to police now."
