An 84-year-old sex offender with underlying health conditions is the first prisoner in the UK to be killed by the coronavirus, reports suggest.
The convict was one of the country’s oldest inmates and died at HMP Littlehey in Cambridgeshire three days ago.
It is understood the deadly virus was only detected in the man, who has not been named, after he died in the category C prison.
