One of the UK’s most violent prisoners, Charles Bronson has been refused parole.
A board ruled that Bronson, now called Charles Salvador, should not be released from HMP Wakefield or moved to an open prison.
The 63-year-old is serving a life sentence for robbery and kidnap and has gained notoriety for a history of violence inside and outside jail.
He must now wait another two years for a review of his case.
Luton-born Bronson recently got married to former Emmerdale and Coronation Street actress Paula Williamson inside the West Yorkshire prison.
Speaking after the decision, his 37-year-old wife said: “He’s not going to be released any time soon.”
She told Talk Radio: “Charlie has admitted his wrongdoings and he’s served his time for every single offence that he’s committed, and well over that time, and it’s time now for him to move forward. He’s an OAP.”
Bronson’s history includes assaulting a prison governor in 2014 and taking three inmates hostage at Belmarsh in 1998.
The parole hearing was on 7 November.
A Parole Board spokesman said: “We can confirm that a panel of the Parole Board has not directed the release of Charles Salvador.
“Under current legislation, Mr Salvador will be eligible for a further review within two years. The date of the next review will be set by the Ministry of Justice.”
