Britain’s most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson, 69, has written to a fan describing what he will do if he is released following a public parole hearing due to take place next year. Bronson, who was locked up for armed robbery and became infamous for his violent outbursts inside, said he would “go collecting what’s owing me”, The Sun reported.  

He said the first thing he will do if he is set free is have a “double bubble proper English fry-up”.

Then, the criminal claimed, he will “go collecting what’s owing me from all the parasites that have sucked off me for four decades”.

He ended the letter: “’Should be fun! Be lucky” and signed off with the surname he now uses, Salvador.

On the outside of the envelope he wrote: “Never walk backwards into a bears cave eating a Big Mac!”

Bronson is one of the UK’s longest-serving prisoners. The former bare-knuckle boxer, born Michael Peterson, was originally sentenced to seven years for armed robbery in 1974 when he was 22. 

Besides two short spells of freedom – from 1987 to 1988 and 1992 to 1993 – he has been in jail ever since.

His term was extended to life imprisonment due to his violent behaviour such as attacks on inmates and prison staff. He is serving his sentence at HMP Woodhill in Buckinghamshire.

Luton-born Bronson was originally convicted of armed robbery in 1974 and developed a reputation as a violent and dangerous inmate.

In 1999 Bronson took a prison education worker hostage and was sentenced to life. He was further sentenced in 2000 to a discretionary life term, with a minimum of four years, for taking a prison teacher hostage for 44 hours at HMP Hull.

Since then the Parole Board has repeatedly refused to direct his release.

Bronson won a court case in 2020 arguing for a public parole hearing and was granted one earlier this month.

In a document setting out the decision for a public hearing, Parole Board chairwoman Caroline Corby said: “I have concluded that a public hearing is in the interests of justice in the case of Mr Salvador.

“I, therefore, grant the application for the hearing to be held in public.”

The case is yet to be listed and a date for the hearing has not been set.

Bronson’s public parole hearing is expected to be the second to take place after the change of rules.  

Russell Causley, who murdered his wife, Carole Packman, in the 1980s and never revealed where he hid her body, is set to become the first prisoner in UK history to have a public parole board hearing.

He was freed in 2020 but sent back to jail last year after breaching his licence conditions.

The hearing, originally listed for October, is expected to take place next month.
