Murderer Rose West is upset after being banned from using the showers in the prison gym, it has been reported.

Bosses at HMP Low Newton, a 336-capacity maximum security jail in Durham, are said to have outlawed inmates taking showers following workouts after a string of thefts. Several prisoners – including notorious Gloucester murderer West – have complained that the ban leaves them "feeling filthy" after a sweaty workout and they are demanding the rule is overturned.

A source told the Daily Mirror that West has become an "avid" gym user in the last year. The 60-year-old, who was jailed for life in 1995 for ten murders, works as a tea lady for prison wardens, earning £16-a-week. But West – and other inmates – is angry they leave the gym "feeling filthy" and are demanding the showers are switched back on.
