The prison transport lorry pulled in through the large iron gates at Newcastle Crown Court it backed in so the prisoners could be led inside.

“Right Bradley up now!

Lee got off the bench slowly and stood up; he towered over the officer but did not react. Lee could not be intimidated by the likes of him.

He followed the officer through the cell door then stood and waited whilst another officer unlocked the Iron Gate which led to the outside.

There was a short set of steps into the lorry and Lee ducked inside the door as he was escorted to a small cubicle. He sat down in what looked like a dog box. There wasn’t enough room to stretch out or stand up. When all the prisoners were loaded up the siren sounded to alert the officers that the lorry was moving.

Inside the lorry the prisoners jolted forward as the lorry began moving. There were no windows inside at all so they had no idea where they were going.

He had his watch on so he could calculate how long the journey was.


When the lorry did stop they had been on the road for just under three hours.

He guessed they could be in Manchester.

When the siren went again Lee knew they had reached the nick where he was to be incarcerated for the next three years. The officers locked the doors to the outside world before opening up the doors to the prison lorry.

It was Friday 13th in January. Black Friday Lee thought as he stepped out into the chilly night. The prisoners were marched into the reception area where they had to stand on a yellow line about ten feet from the reception desk.

“Right you maggot’s strip!

Lee took off his black Harrington jacket, his red checked Ben Sherman shirt then a pair of two toned Levi stays pressed trousers, the socks he was wearing were red and he had black leather soled riding boots on.

“Everything lad and be quick about it.”

Lee dropped his black jockey’s then stood facing the front as the names were called out. Each prisoner was given a number and Lee listened for his name.

“Bradley, where are you?

“Here said Lee.

“You address the officers here as Sir; do you understand Bradley.

“Yes Sir.”

“We have ourselves a want to be hard case isn’t that right Bradley?

“No Sir.”

“So what is it then are you some kind of Pussy then?

“No Sir.”

“Well you will find out that in “Strangeway’s” lad there are no hard cases because we rule in here and the sooner you get it the better.

Now 69147 bring your gear over here and put them in the box take off any jewellery watches, and earrings they are not allowed here.

Lee came forward and hand over his possessions including a hundred pounds in cash.
