Ahmed Al-Sharif, 53, a prisoner at HMP Birmingham, has been given an indefinite hospital order after attacking three officers with parts of a broken TV screen.

After a trial in January he was found guilty of two charges of wounding with intent and two charges of assault. The court heard that he suffered from a serious mental illness, and his behaviour was becoming difficult to manage.  He attacked officers with the glass when they came into his cell to give him lunch,

Mr Recorder Steve Evans said without treatment Al-Sharif would represent a “real danger to the public”. Earl Pinnock, defending, said it was hoped that he could eventually be managed in the community.
