Evil Rose West hit by lethal disease
VILE Rose West has been laid low with a serious illness that could kill her, it was claimed yesterday.
West, 63, is said to be “very sick” with a mystery condition in her cell at HMP Durham.
The Cromwell Street serial killer is regularly escorted to the prison medical centre and pharmacy for treatment.
And our source claimed the entire prison “locks down” when she is on the move, to stop the reviled lag being attacked.
The insider said: “She’s very ill.
“Her medical records are closely guarded, and she has a very small circle of staff and fellow inmates in jail, so hardly anyone knows exactly what’s wrong with her.
“But the rumour is that it’s very serious, and could even finish her off.
“West’s life is planned to the letter, because her notoriety makes her very vulnerable to attacks from fellow inmates.
“It also means that when she requires medical attention or prescribed drugs, the entire wing is locked down so she is not attacked while visiting the doctor or pharmacist.”
West shot to notoriety in
1994 when nine bodies were found at the home she shared with husband Fred.
The “House of Horrors” on Gloucester’s Cromwell Street yielded victims including the couple’s daughter Heather, killed in June 1987 aged 16.
They also killed younger daughter Charmaine in
1971 and buried her at their previous home in the city.
West was convicted of 10 murders in 1995 and sentenced to life in jail.
Her husband hanged himself in prison on New Year’s Day 1995 awaiting trial for 12 murders.
West has continued to hit headlines with jail antics including a rumoured affair with the Moors Murderer Myra Hindley, who died in
A Ministry of Justice spokesman refused to comment on West’s health.
A £5 BLOOD test which can tell if people with chest pains are at risk of a heart attack could cut costs in A&E departments.
A study of nearly 23,000 people found it accurately ruled out the risk of a heart attack in almost half of those in A&E with chest pains, saving the need for further checks.
