Prisoner Chrles Bronson.

Nathan Duce, 28, works in IT but admits he has had a fascination and curiosity about the prison, nicknamed ‘Monster Mansion’ because of some of its inmates’ violent crimes, since he first saw it as a youngster.

He has now put together videos, that he narrates, and posted them on Youtube under the name of his production company, Rotting Llama.

The videos look at, among others, serial killer Dr Harold Shipman, Soham murderer Ian Huntley, and Charles Bronson, who is regarded as Britain’s most violent inmate.

“This includes all the research, recording the audio, editing and publishing.”
