Bronson: 'It's nice to be nice'

A teenage girl who lost her leg in the horrific Alton Towers crash has received a get well soon card from an unlikely source.

Leah Washington (17) had to have her leg amputated following a crash on the Smiler ride last month.
 
The 17-year-old has made an amazing recovery from the horror incident and has received well wishes from around the world. 
 
 
Most interesting of these was the latest handmade card she received from 'Britain's Most Dangerous Prisoner' Charles Bronson. 
 
Bronson, who now goes by Charles Salvador, sent Washington a card showing a smiling crocodile with the words ‘Leah, hope you get well soon x’ in the top corner. 'It's nice to be nice' is inscribed on the card. 
 
It was also signed: 'A Salvador Special'. 
 
 
Bronson, or Salvador - a name he chose in honour of the Surrealist artist Dali - is currently incarcerated in one of Britain's most notorious prisons. 
 
He currently utilises his considerable artistic talent to produce works to sell for charity.
