A convicted murderer is currently making news all over the United Kingdom and the world for protesting on top of the roof of Strangeways prison in Manchester.
The convicted murderer, 35-year-old Stuart Horner, reportedly scaled an 18 feet fence in order to get to the top of the prison’s roof. Horner started his protest on Sunday afternoon.
According to the prisoner, he plans to stay on the roof protesting for 40 days and 40 nights, which is obviously why even though he has been convinced to come down on countless occasions by authorities he has refused.
Horner’s protest is indeed quite a bizarre one. The 35-year-old convicted killer initially climbed the roof of the prison fully clothed but somewhere along the protest, he stripped his clothes off to just his underwear. In just his underwear, Horner has been precariously moving up and down the roof protesting.
Although Horner hasn’t said exactly why his is on the roof of the prison protesting, reports say that he has continuously been shouting about the unpleasant conditions prisoners face at the Strangeways prison.
Horner is said to have all the things he needs to stay on top of the roof for several days. He is believed to have enough food and water to last him for days. He also has blankets and cigarettes.
Horner was sentenced to a minimum of 27 years in prison for shooting dead his uncle during a family feud.
As of the time of the writing of this post, Horner is still on top of the Strangeways prison protesting. He has currently spent more than 24 hours on the roof.
