For Maudsley, this was a welcome relief from the chaos and poverty at home.

But when he was eight, his parents came to take him and his siblings home and he was subjected to years of violent abuse.

His father would regularly beat his children, and Maudsley often took extra beatings to protect his siblings.

Once, a young Maudsley was locked in a room for six months, his only contact was violence from his father.

As soon as he was 16, Maudsley fled home but soon became trapped in a spiral of drug abuse and funded his habit by working as a rent boy.

When Maudsley was certain Roberts was dead he calmly walked up to a prison guard and told him there would be two less for dinner that night.

Now deemed too dangerous to remain amongst the general prison population, work began on constructing a special cell for Maudsley in the bowels of Wakefield Prison.

By 1983, it was ready. The cell was dubbed the glass cage as it was so similar to the prison Hannibal Lector was kept in in Silence of the Lambs.

It's just 5.5metres by 4.5metres and has huge bullet-proof windows, which prison officers watch Muadsley through.

The only furniture is a table and a chair, which are both made of compressed cardboard, while his toilet and sink are bolted to the floor.

Maudsley's bed is a concrete slab and the door is made of solid steel, which opens into a cage just inside.

The cage is encased in thick, see-through, acrylic panels and has a small slit at the bottom, through which guards pass the serial killer his meals and other items he needs.

Maudsley is locked in the cell for 23 hours a day, only being freed for 60 minutes for an hour of exercise.

He is escorted to the exercise yard by six guards and is never allowed any contact with other inmates.

In an interview Maudsley said he felt "tormented" in solitary confinement.

He explained: "There is a lack of hope and I don't appear to have anything to look forward to.

"I feel no officer takes any interest in me and they're only concerned with when the open the door and then to make sure I get back in my cell as soon as possible.

"I think an officer could stop and talk a bit but they never do and it's these thoughts that I think about most of the time."

Maudsley claimed his time in solitary confinement was haing an impact on his speech and he was no longer able to speak clearly through lack of contact.

He added: "I see this in part as going back to my childhood and going back to the room where I was detained for six months and that torments me."

In a desperate attempt for company, in 2000 Maudsley begged for the terms of his imprisonment to be relaxed.

He asked for a pet budgie and then, if that was refused, for a cyanide capsule so he could end his life.

His requests were denied and Maudsley will spend the rest of his life, alone, in his glass box underneath Wakefield Prison.
