Bury St Edmunds: Prison Officer Tells Court She 'Thought She Was Going to Die'

22 November 2012, 16:21

A prison officer's wept in court as she told a jury how she was held at gunpoint in Bury St Edmunds.

44-year-old Garry Cowan is accused of possession of a replica handgun and assisting an offender to escape.

It's after prisoner Andrew Farndon went on the run from West Suffolk Hospital in January. He'd been taken there after suffering a knife wound in Highpoint Prison. He was serving a sentence for grievous bodily harm after a hammer attack that left a man with a fractured skull.

Cowan denies the charges.

Prison Officer Kim Lockwood has been giving evidence today in Woolwich Crown Court.
