Jeffery went into the study then found he had left his writing paper in his cell. He walked up to the guard and asked if he would escort him back to his cell so he could get some paper.

The guard opened the Iron Gate and he was led through they walked along the corridor and then the officer led him to another room and told him to wait. The officer left and Jeffery turned his back and was looking out of the window when four men came in and one of them grabbed him from behind the others quickly gagged him and held him down he was punched in the face over and over his face was like pulp. Both of his eye sockets were broken his jaw was smashed and he’d lost several teeth. He passed out and it was during this time that he felt more pain and then coldness over took his body. The guard returned and then blew the whistle. He pressed the alarm and other guards came running. They saw Jeffery lying spread eagled on the floor he was covered in blood. His trousers had been removed as well as his underwear and they had cut off his scrotum and half of his penis. The guard grabbed a towel and pressed it onto the wound as he was carried to the hospital wing. When they got there he was barely alive. The doctor had to stitch him up to stop the bleeding then he was sent to St Giles the local hospital under guard. He underwent surgery which lasted six hours. Mr Robert Style had to reconstruct a penis for him because the original pieces of his body had been flushed down the toilet. They took grafts from his inner thigh and sewed it to the corpus spongiosum then reattached the vas deferens. The dorsal vein and cavernous artery had been severed as well as the corpora cavernosa. Luckily the urethra was still functioning they had to make him a new penis head and re-attach a blood supply. They pumped three pints of blood into him before setting to work on his broken face Mr Style’s work was done; Mr Rick Mathewson took over in the theatre. The mandible and the maxilla had to be wired up the zygomatic bones. It was as if the whole of Jeffery’s face had caved in. They reconstructed his eye sockets and replaced the teeth that had been smashed out with false ones; after several stitches were placed inside and outside of his mouth. Jeffery was bandaged up and placed into the ITC ward.

The next twenty four hours were crucial and it would take several months before he would be allowed out of the ward if he survived. A policeman was posted on the door of the ward every day to make sure that Jeffery did not escape.

 Not that Jeffery Worthington was in a fit state to walk anywhere.’

The newspapers were full of the story how a top solicitor had undergone pioneering surgery after his penis and scrotum were severed in one of her majesty’s prisons.

Pictures of the reconstruction to his face were plastered on every news stand on the front pages. Jeffery lost nearly three stones in weight because he could only suck soup through a straw. He was later transferred to an open prison to serve out the rest of his sentence. He was watched every hour of every day.

Nathan Peters heard about the attack later that day and thought himself to blame for leaving Jeffery alone He found the people who had done this to Jeffery and he made sure that those men who had done this would never attack another man again. Four men were thrown from the balcony on A’ wing and landed onto the floors below. None of the men who had attacked Jeffery Worthington would ever walk again. Nathan continued with his studies after writing to the Open University and being accepted. He wrote to Jeffery every week telling him of his progress. He had a new helper in the Library; none other than Kelvin Williamson.
