Paedophile Gary Glitter has been recalled to prison after a breach of his licence conditions, just one month after his release from prison.
Last month, the 79-year-old former popstar, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was released on licence after being jailed in 2015 for sexually abusing three schoolgirls.
He left HMP The Verne – a low security category C jail in Portland, Dorset – following eight years behind bars, having served half of his 16-year sentence.
Commenting on Glitter’s return to prison, a probation service spokesperson said: “Protecting the public is our number one priority. That’s why we set tough licence conditions and when offenders breach them, we don’t hesitate to return them to custody.”
Glitter is being returned to prison on Monday, following a breach of his licence conditions, and his re-release will be a matter for the parole board.
