The number of terrorists in prison in Britain is expected to rise by more than tenfold over the next 10 years. Internal projections by the Prison Service suggest that the number of inmates held on terrorist offences will rise from 131 today to 1,600 by 2017. About 1,300 of them will be Category A inmates, who require the highest level of security.
