A man was yesterday handed a life sentence after attacking a prison officer whilst on remand at the Isle of Man prison.

Steven Eric Galloway carried out the serious, premeditated and unprovoked attack whilst an officer was carrying out a routine duty.

Galloway used makeshift weapons and it's said to be very fortunate the officer did not sustain serious injuries.
