Rooftop protestor Stuart Horner seen jabbing at riot police at HMP Manchester

New pictures have emerged of HMP Manchester rooftop protestor Stuart Horner appearing to jab at riot police with metal poles.

Officers wearing special body armour were seen to take up positions on the roof the jail, formerly known as Strangeways, on the third afternoon of the one-man protest.

Earlier, it emerged several prisoners had been moved to other jails because of the levels of damage caused by Horner, who appears to have the support of a crowd of people outside the prison walls.
