Gangster Fat Freddie's jail 'shiv' discovered in search

GANGSTER Fat Freddie Thompson had a makeshift knife hidden in his jail cell which was found alongside his porn stash this week.

The homemade ‘shiv’ was found with a memory stick in the mobster’s jail cell in the Midlands prison.

Thompson, who is locked in a lethal feud with a rival gang, has real fears he could be targeted behind bars.

He previously clashed with inmates at Wheatfield while on remand and has since been moved to the County Laois lock-up.

Fat Freddie has now been taken off the ‘enhanced regime’ which means he loses some home comforts and extra telephone calls.

He is serving a 20 month sentence for violent disorder.
