The Sunday Mirror claims that serial killer Rose West has embarked on a lesbian affair with a fellow prisoner.

West, 51 met Chantelle Easton, 39, who is serving a sentence for robbery at Bronzefield prison in Ashford.

They are both being held in the prison’s segregation unit. West is kept there for her own safety, whilst Easton was transferred there after being abusive to an officer.

A prison source told the Sunday Mirror: “they have been seeing each other for about three weeks – at exercise time, in the dining room and in the showers.”

West was jailed for life in 1995 for the kidnap and murder of 10 girls including her own daughter. Her husband, Fred killed himself whilst in prison.
