The Prime Minister is considering putting all terrorist prison inmates into a single jail which has been dubbed the British Alcatraz.
The jail, would hold all 131 Islamist inmates, convicted of terror offences, in a single secure unit to stop them infecting other prisoners with their extremist views.
The policy has been recommended by a new review into radicalisation in British prisons, and David Cameron said hinted earlier this week he is 'prepared to consider major changes'.

It would reverse the current policy of dispersing dangerous inmates across eight prisons, which has been in place for 50 years. This stops them creating gangs and power structures within the jail.
One prison source told The Times that it would be better to maintain the the ability to move prisoners, but agreed it would be a good idea to segregate them to stop them 'infecting other inmates with their views.

There are concerns that putting all radicals in one prison, or a secure unit within a jail such as Belmarsh, would give them another reason for protest, and be considered a British Guantanamo Bay.
The proposed jail has been dubbed 'The British Alcatraz', likened to the American jail which was created to house the country's most dangerous inmates, all in one place.
The idea behind Alcatraz was to separate them from other prisoners so they could not influence others with their bad behaviour, similar to the purpose of separating Islamist extremists.
The review also recommends calling former soldiers into young offenders institutions, and for them to run their own cadet corps.

A surgeon that seriously injured a woman after he accidentally stapled her vagina during routine surgery three years ago has been stood down after another 'significant clinical incident.'
This time the doctor - previously on a $350,000 yearly salary - left a middle-aged man with 'massive urological trauma' during a botched hernia operation, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
The doctor, who conducted the surgery at the Robina Hospital on Queensland's Gold Coast, was stood down on February 1 and is now being investigated by the Office of the Health Ombudsman and the Health Practitioners Agency.

According to the publication, staff had previously expressed their concerns that the ageing doctor had been allowed to continue performing surgery.
Professor Marianne Vonau, Gold Coast Health's executive director of clinical governance, education and research, said the hospital had taken a number of precautionary steps to ensure safety of patients.
'There was a previous incident involving the same surgeon in 2013. In response Gold Coast Health implemented a number of measures to ensure safe outcomes for our patients,' she said,

'The surgeon has been working under a restricted scope of practice and there were no other clinical incidents from that point until now. Throughout this period we were aware of concerns raised by staff.'
A private source told the Gold Coast Bulletin the latest incident was a result of a 'major techincal error.'
'The patient had a major ­injury to the bladder and rectum. It will take some time to recover from that,' the source said.
The 2013 case that saw a female patient with a stapled vagina happened during bowel surgery.

A journalist who was kicked out of a student protest at Missouri University last year after a professor asked for 'muscle' to remove him has been thrown out of another public meeting.
Mark Schierbecker, a student videographer for The College Fix, was attending a meeting of the Concerned Student 1950, a black activist group, on Wednesday when he was asked to leave.
When he refused, members of the group threatened to call police and campus security to file a 'racial bias report', before telling him: 'This is, like, once again white people being privileged.'

Footage of the incident, shot by Schierbecker, shows the meeting in the AP Chapel on Mizzou's campus, which was advertised over Twitter as a forum 'for black students and students of color'
As film of the incident begins, several white members of the press can be seen sat along the pews.
Before the meeting gets underway, a woman - who appears to be the leader of the meeting - asks: 'If there are any reporters in here, can you please exit? That was my nice warning.'
A member of the local press then stands up and questions why reporters are being asked to leave, to which the woman responds: 'Just because I asked you to. We just want to discuss some things.'

The man can then be seen handing over his business card before exiting, while two other female journalists also left, according to The College Fix.
However, Schierbecker refused to leave, starting a tense confrontation with the group, during which several of them also took out their phones and began recording.
Schierbecker can be heard saying: 'This is considered a limited public forum. It’s open to the public, and especially to students of the university.

'I am here on assignment for a story and it is my personal preference not to leave.'
The footage then cuts momentarily before coming back to show the leader of the meeting standing next to Schierbecker.
She tells him: 'This is, like, once again white people being privileged and refusing to leave our spaces.'
The woman then asks Schierbecker to lower his camera, which he agrees to, although footage is still being recorded.
As several students try to explain themselves to Schierbecker, the leader of the group again speaks up telling them: 'You don’t give him any explanation because, like, that’s not necessary.'
She then suggests phoning the police in order to file a 'racial bias incident report', adding that 'I just don't have the time or the patience.'
When Schierbecker asks if she is referring to him, she responds: 'I'm not talking to you.'

After a short altercation, Schierbecker tells the group that he is recording 'for my own safety', saying that he wants to keep a record for police.
That statement appears to anger some of the group who raise their voices at him, though other members do ask them to quieten down.
After a brief and heated exchange with the group, Schierbecker again repeats that he will put the camera away, provided the police are not called.
However, before authorities arrive the group decide to move their meeting to a more private location, at which point they get up and leave.
According to Schierbecker, police and campus security never arrived to speak with him, and he received no follow-up call.

This is the second time Schierbecker has got into trouble with demonstrators on campus after he tried to film a tent city set up as part of protests that ousted college president Tim Wolfe last year.
On that occasion Schierbecker was confronted by then-assistant communications professor Melissa Click, who told protesters: 'Who wants to help me get this reporter out of here? I need some muscle over here.'
She has since been suspended and charged with assault over the incident, which Schierbecker also caught on film, and which has been viewed millions of times online.

It's going to be a chilly Valentine's day, whether you've got someone to cuddle up to or not.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned New Yorkers to take 'extreme precautions' over the weekend, which could see the coldest temperatures in a decade for much of the Northeast.
The region will be hit by a 'life-threatening' icy blast that will send many cities' temperatures below zero as the polar vortex returns.

A wind chill advisory was in effect for New York City beginning Saturday afternoon and continuing to noon Sunday, with the forecast predicting temperatures of 2 degrees.
Wind chills are expected to drop 18 to 24 degrees below across the region and wind gusts may reach 45 mph.
But the Big Apple will have it easy compared to the likes Boston, with a low at 2 degrees below, and temperatures in Worcester, Massachusetts to drop as low as 11 degrees below.
Weather Channel Forecaster Michael Palmer said anyone who dares step outside Sunday morning will feel like they're 'walking into a freezer'.
'This will be the coldest air for more than a decade,' he told NBC News.
The National Weather Service warned that residents take precautions to protect themselves from frostbite or hypothermia conditions.
De Blasio told New York residents to heed cold-weather warnings, adding that city workers would also bring people living on the street to shelters or hospitals.

Meanwhile, a midwinter heat wave is smashing records in California.
Temperatures on the southern West Coast rocketed into the 90s for the second consecutive day on Tuesday even as the warming Santa Ana winds that came in on Saturday began to fade.
Forecasters said strong high pressure will continue through the week, keeping afternoon temperatures well above normal until at least Valentine's Day on Sunday.

'Even the bank was surprised': Mystery as retired Kansas teacher 'who lived like an old maid' leaves $2 million in her will to Jesuit Society of Jesus

Anna Kurzweil left the hefty sum in her will - much to relatives' surprise
She had been living off a pension of $1,000 a month but was 'thrifty'
The recipients - the Jesuit Society of Jesus - said the gift 'exemplified the power of planned giving'
Relatives - who say sum must have come from wise investments - were left $5,000 each in the will

A former nun who spent her final years 'living as a maid' has left a mystery $2 million to a Jesuit society - despite never earning more than $20,000 a year.
Anna Kurzweil, who never married and had no children, left relatives puzzled after she gave the grand sum in her will - while only leaving them $5,000 a piece.
And while the donation's recipient, Society of Jesus, may not come as a surprise - Kurzweil had devoted much of her life to God - the hefty sum certainly does.
But Kurzweil's relatives told Kansas City Star that the money must be the result of wise investing and that she was 'sharp and thrifty' with money.
They said she did inherit a small nest egg left after the family’s three farms were sold and divvied up among the children and saved from there.
Kurzweil, who died aged 100 in 2012, had been a longtime member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, a parish at 1001 E. 52nd St., near Rockhurst University and had lived in a small house nearby.
Her nephew John Van De Vyvere told Kansas City Star: 'Nobody knew she had that kind of money.
'I think even the people at the bank were surprised.'
Relatives said that she had been living off a thousand-dollar-a-month pension.
And John Fitzpatrick, a provincial assistant for the Jesuits, told Religion News Services that Kurzweil had 'exemplified the power of planned giving' and that the gift was unrestricted, meaning the order may use the money however it wishes.

According to the paper, Kurzweil grew up the youngest of eight children on a farm in Grandview, Kansas.
After college she became a schoolteacher, which is where she had her heart broken by a fellow colleague - spurring her to commit to a life of God.
In an excerpt from her journal, published by the papers she writes: 'Then. I made my commitment to live for God.'
She joined the order of Sisters of Loretto post- Word War II, but left in the mid fifties to care for her mother.
After her mother's death she traveled the world, working at one point in a leper colony in New Guinea.
She spent her final years living in a small house in Rockhurst.
Nephew Harold Kurzweil told the paper: 'She had gone through a lot and by that time lived pretty much like an old maid.'
