Leading the thugs was al-Qaeda fanatic Parviz Khan, serving life for plotting to behead a Muslim member of the Army – and thought to be the inspiration for last week’s horrific slaughter.
The terrified officer, in his 30s, was finally freed by a specialist riot squad who stormed the room where he was held for five hours and beaten mercilessly by the extremists, who told him he would die.
“It was organised and inspired by the terrible death of Lee Rigby. Khan wanted to start a riot and after taking a hostage he was shouting for ‘true Muslims’ to join a holy war.
Staff at Full Sutton, which holds dozens of terrorists, said they had warned bosses about Khan’s volatile temperament and insisted he was an increased security risk.
They had wanted him moved into a segregation wing. But they claimed their pleas were ignored as jail chiefs did not want to risk stirring up trouble.
