Lurpak: The prisoner covered himself in butter before attack

Charles Bronson, 'Britain's most violent prisoner', reportedly covered himself in Lurpak butter and attacked 12 prison officers - after Arsenal beat Hull in the final of the FA Cup.

In a letter seen by the Mirror newspaper, the 62-year-old admitted to Kate Kray - the ex-wife of late gangster Ronnie Kray - that he "lost it" after the result. 

Bronson, a die-hard Tottenham fan, said in the letter he had endured another "rumble", but had come off worse and was left with broken ribs. 

“Not good news. I’ve had another rumble. This time with a dozen riot mob on the yard", the letter, dated May 19, read. 
 
“Obviously I had my reasons and I’d sooner swallow teeth than my pride. Sadly I came off worst – got smashed up ribs.
 
"Life goes on Kate! You won’t hear me moan! It was sunny! A scorcher! Arsenal was playing Hull. I so wanted Hull to win, coz I’m Spurs.
 
“I got Lurpak and spread it on thick. Then a small cloud appeared."
 
Using a tactic he's apparently utilised on a number of occasions he covered himself in butter so that the guards couldn't get a proper hold on him. 
 
Before the attack he said he saw a vision of Ronnie Kray telling him to let the guards "have it".
 
“I swear I see Ron’s face. It was eerie. Go on son, let ’em have it!”
 
“I know the mind plays games in moments of mad events but it is still a comforting thought Ron’s still around. Made me feel happy. Safe! Double up for it!”
 
The crazed prisoner has spent 36 years of the last 40 years in solitary confinement, and has tasted freedom for just four months over the four decades. 
 
He first went to jail in 1976 for armed robbery of a Post Office for seven years but has since been convicted for a string of violent offences behind bars. 
 
Since being incarcerated Bronson - real name Michael Peterson - has taken up art, for which he apparently has a keen desire. 
 
His most recent ruckus came when he allegedly attacked the governor of Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes after he suggested his art was too violent. 
 
Ms Kray said: “Apparently he lost it and attacked the governor for saying his art was too explicit, too violent. He got put back in the cage and started drawing Easter bunnies instead of his usual disturbing pictures. But he is really upset that he’s upset his mum.
 
“I’d told him I was planning an auction of lots of Ron’s and Reggie’s stuff, so he said, ‘Can you put my drawings in auction to send my mum on holiday?’”
 
“Charlie has only two things to occupy him in his cage. His fitness regime and his art. If you keep a man in a cage for 36 years, then rattle that cage, be prepared, he’ll bite", she added. 
 
The Ministry of Defence in the UK has decline to comment on the incident further. 
 
His tumultuous life became the subject of a film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Tom Hardy.
 
This is what Hardy said about the first time he spoke to Bronson before the film (Warning: Contains strong language).
