A serving prisoner has been charged with murder following the death of a fellow inmate at a high-security prison, police said.

Victor Castigador, 61, will appear in court on Wednesday after being charged by West Mercia Police with causing the death of a 59-year-old man at Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire.

The victim was pronounced dead at around 9am on Monday.

Castigador has been remanded in custody ahead of his appearance at Worcester Magistrates' Court.

The death at the Category A unit came little more than a year after another prisoner was killed there.

Murderer John York, 25, from Northamptonshire, was killed at the prison in May 2015.

York had been jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years in March 2013 after being found guilty of beating 60-year-old Glenn Clary to death in August 2012.

Russell Anthony Oliver, 46, was given a whole-life sentence in March for York's murder.
