A man who was just weeks away from his release from prison is now serving almost another two years behind bars.

Tyson Wardle, 28, formerly from Barnsley, was charged with common assault following an incident in December last year at HMP Moorland, where he was already a serving prisoner for possession of an offensive weapon.

He was just 12 days away from being released from prison when he threw a bucket of liquid, believed to be a mixture of urine and faeces, into the wing office where two prison officers were. The bucket hit one of the officers.

The incident was caught on CCTV and an investigation was launched with prison staff and detectives in the Doncaster Prison Crime Unit. 

Wardle entered a guilty plea to assault and was jailed for a further 21-months at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday 28 January.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Handley, said: “Through a joint investigation with the Prison Crime Unit and officers and staff from HMP Moorland, we’ve been able deal with this incident quickly and ensure Wardle was brought before the courts for his disgusting actions.

“Prison staff should be able to come to work and do their jobs, without fear of such incidents occurring. Together with staff at the prison service we are continuing to eliminate crime inside the prison and bring those involved in such incidents before the courts.”
