Ian Huntley ‘wants to be woman to move jail’

CHILD killer Ian Huntley has hatched a plot to change sex so he can start a new life at a women’s prison using the name Nicola, it is claimed.

The 44-year-old is said to have asked pen-pals to send him a tweed dress and a blonde wig and stockings for Christmas.

According to reports, Huntley, who murdered ten-year-olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in 2002, wants to be moved from HMP Frankland in County Durham.

‘He believes that he will have a much cushier life in a women’s prison,’ a source told the Daily Star Sunday.

‘But he will get a far harder time from female prisoners. There’s a growing number of trans prisoners in Frankland and Huntley is desperate to be a member of a group who will offer him a bit of protection.’ He is reportedly trying to prove to doctors that he is serious.

School caretaker Huntley was handed two life terms — later set at a minimum of 40 years — for the murders in Soham, Cambridgeshire.
