Strange case of Piles

A prisoner has been caught with an entire mobile phone charger hidden up his bottom.

Suspicious officers noticed murderer Tony Pile's discomfort while searching his cell, reports The Sun.

He finally confessed and grimaced as he produced the cable and plug.

Two fist-sized blocks of cannabis and cocaine were also found hidden in the cell on D-wing at Swaleside Prison on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent.

Police action is now being considered against Pile, 22, from Ashford, who was jailed for beating a man to death in a race hate attack in 2005.

A Prison Service source said: "We've known for some time that prisoners hide phones up there but this is a first.

"Pile had somehow managed to secrete the entire charger where the sun doesn't shine.

"It just goes to show the lengths some inmates will go to stay in touch with the outside world while banged up."

Staff launched a series of searches at Swaleside in a crackdown on smuggling of drugs and phones.
