Britain's most infamous prisoner Charles Bronson could soon be granted freedom as he faces a public parole hearing this week.

The Parole Board will review the release bid from one of the country's longest serving prisoners, making Bronson only the second inmate in UK legal history to have his case heard in public, the PA news agency reports.

Bronson, who has been dubbed one of Britain's most violent and notorious offenders, has changed his name several times since he was first imprisoned in 1974.

Bronson has held 11 hostages in nine different sieges – with victims including governors, doctors, staff and, on one occasion, his own solicitor.
