UK prisons could stop transgender inmates serving their sentences in women's prisons, as the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) announced it plans to consider revisions to current policy.

The review comes amid the high-profile case of Karen White, a convicted sex offender who is yet to undergo gender reassignment surgery, who was placed in women's prison HMP New Hall after telling authorities he identified as a woman.

He subsequently sexually assaulted two female prisoners.

The 52-year-old, who was previously convicted in 2001 for indecent assault and gross indecency with a child, was ordered at the end of last year to serve a life sentence for the jail sex attacks and two rapes carried out when he was still a man.

In a question asked about the case in parliament earlier this week, justice minister Ed Argar, said the matter was being reviewed and that 'new guidelines' on the issue would be announced soon.
