Murderer Ian Huntley has been locked up in solitary confinement after swearing at a prison worker and kicking a guard, according to reports.

The prisoner killed Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, both aged 10, in Soham, in 2002.

It has been reported today (November 14) that Huntley was allegedly first placed in isolation after breaching prison rules by swearing at an official.

He was then taken out of his cell for an adjudication hearing, however, he soon returned to solitary confinement after reportedly kicking a prison guard.

Huntley was thrown into isolation in HMP Frankland, in Durham, in August.
