The man who was convicted of murdering Cork nurse Karen Buckley has forced prison chiefs in Scotland to investigate claims that fellow lags were tampering with his food, according to reports.

The Sun reports on the claims made by Pacteau, who was locked up for life in 2015 for the murder of the 24-year old in Glasgow.

The killer is currently serving his time in Kilmarnock Prison.

According to the paper the murderer became convinced that other prisoners were spitting or urinating in food like soup or custard and raised a complaint with prison authorities.

The private company that run the prison for the Scottish Prison Service confirmed to the paper that they investigated the claims and found no evidence of any tampering.

Pacteau, who is not eligible for parole until at least 2038, is housed in a protected area of the prison and he had to be moved there from another facility to protect him from fellow inmates.

Pacteau attacked and killed the petite Irish student just minutes after she left 'The Sanctuary' nightclub on Glasgow's Dumbarton Road at 1am on April 12 2015.

He attempted to dispose of Karen's body using caustic soda.
