Murderer Levi Bellfield has bragged about splashing hundreds of pounds on fancy designer clothes from jail.
The hammer killer boasted to pen pals about his wardrobe of pricey gear including Nike trainers, an Armani tracksuit and Hugo Boss T-shirts.
Bellfield, whose victims included Milly Dowler has hundreds of pounds in his prison bank account, given to him by friends and family members.
His purchases included Hackett polo shirts, which he reckoned were “very cheap” at £75 each.
The spending spree of nearly £400 happened while he was “bored” during lockdown.
Writing from HMP Frankland, under his Muslim convert name Yusuf Rahim, he told his pal: “Not a lot happening here, same old repetitive lockdown regime.
“I’ve had enough of it, so f***ing boring, it really is!
“I’m just chilling, a bit of running on the yard, bit of art, when I can be bothered and watching TV. Ordered some new clothes.
“Air Max trainers, only £110, an Emporio Armani tracksuit, again very cheap only £140, Hackett T-shirts (polo) £75 each, at present prices are very cheap.
“I also bought a pack of three Hugo Boss T-shirts for £29.99 – that is very, very cheap.
“They are nothing at £29.99 right!”
HMP Frankland, in Co Durham, is dubbed Monster Mansion due to the horrific crimes committed by its inmates.
It is also home to Ian Huntley and Sean Mercer, the killer of Rhys Jones. Ripper Peter Sutcliffe was held there before his death last year.

Bellfield also claimed to have a queue of friends to call.
In the letter, seen by the Daily Star Sunday, he added: “Hey, I do have your number but haven’t put it in to have it cleared as yet.
“We only get 15 minutes a day and out of that time I have so many people to phone. But when your number is cleared I will try and call you.”
Bellfield was jailed for life in 2008 for the hammer murders of Amelie Delagrange, 22, and Marsha McDonnell, 19, and the attempted murder of Kate Sheedy, 18.
In 2011 he was convicted of the 2002 killing of Milly, 13, who was abducted in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. Last week it also emerged he is being investigated over the hammer murders of Lin and Megan Russell in 1996 in Kent.
Michael Stone, also at Frankland, was jailed for the killings in 1998 but police have found lost evidence 14 years later, it has been claimed. The Criminal Cases Review Commission confirmed an inquiry has begun.
