Convicted IRA man Liam McCotter claimed Monday April 10th 2000 that prison officers beat him up after Republicans tried to shoot their way to freedom from the top-security jail. One prison officer was shot and wounded before the 1994 escape bid at the Cambridgeshire jail was foiled when the six men were recaptured.
McCotter, 36, claims he was repeatedly kicked and punched by warders soon after he was captured, and again in a segregation cell. The terrorist now a free man was given 15 years in 1988 for conspiracy to cause explosions after a 200lb cache of Semtex was found. Targets were thought to include Manchester and London. PA photo.
