Double police killer Dale Cregan is living in fear as fellow prisoners queue up to collect a £20,000 bounty on his one remaining eye.

Cregan, 34, is serving a whole life sentence for the murders of two female police officers in 2012 by falsely luring them to his home with fake reports of criminal damage.

Murders - Ashworth - Hospital - Hunger - Strike

He was jailed in 2013 after admitting to four murders, but was moved to Ashworth Hospital shortly after when he went on hunger strike.

Murderer - Drug-dealer - Eye - Circumstances - Years
