An inmate at the high security Whitemoore jail in March is due in court today accused of attempted murder.

Kevin McCarthy, 49, was charged last month following what police described as a serious assault on a fellow prisoner in October last year.

The victim needed treatment for life-threatening neck injuries following the incident.

McCarthy is due to appear before Peterborough Crown Court today.
