Transgender woman jailed in men's prison attempts suicide

The inmate living as a woman at the men’s prison is reported to have almost lost her life after she slashed herself with a razor blade.

 

Daily Mail reports that the staff at the facility had spotted her injuries through a spyhole in her cell door at HMP Littlehey, Cambs.

A nurse at the facility fought to stop the “huge” blood loss at the scene.

A source reveals to Sunday People:

“She must have been desperate. It was ­horrible.“

She’d had hormone therapy and ­developed breasts but she had not had surgery to transform her ­genitals.”

The reports further reveal that two other transgender inmates are reported to have committed suicide last year after being jailed in all-male prison facilities to serve their time.

According to The Ministry of Justice ­who confirmed that a Littlehey inmate was treated at a hospital, they also disclosed that the inmate has been returned to the prison.
