Charles Bronson breaks into SONG after being denied parole – before making call to his mum | The Sun

CHARLES Bronson broke out into song after being denied parole before making a call to his mum.

Britain's most notorious lag, 70, was yesterday denied his eighth bid for freedom after spending nearly 50 years behind bars.

Bronson called author Dave Courtney after the Parole Board ruling to sing 1967 Englebert Humperdinck classic 'Please Release Me'.

He said he would be in the exercise yard today with a "big f***ing smile on my face" doing press ups in the hope some "f***ing jealous fat screws" were watching.

The prisoner – now known as Charles Salvador – also called his mum Eira, his ex-wife Irene Dunroe told The Mirror.

Irene, who married Bronson in 1972 and shares a son with him, said Bronson has been left "absolutely devastated".

Five times Charles Bronson BLEW chances of parole during freedom bid

The mum added: "He was disappointed. He said he had to make the hardest phone call he has ever had to make to his mum saying: 'I'm not coming out mum.'

"He's so disappointed. He thought he was the nearest he's ever been to freedom.

"He was courageous. He told me, 'Please don't get upset. Please don't cry'."

The Parole Board ruled Bronson lacks the "skills to manage his risk of future violence" as the panel also denied a move to an open prison.

Currently, the inmate, who claims he now "hates violence", is only allowed out of his cell for 90 minutes a day.

Responding to the judgment, his alleged son George Bamby said: "I would have loved Charlie to have been released but completely respect the decision of the Parole Board."

But not everyone was quick to jump to Bronson's defence due to the prisoner's long list of violence while behind bars.

Adrian Wallace was held hostage and beaten for five hours by Bronson at Hull Prison while he was deputy governor in 1984.

He told Mail Online: "Mr Bronson, it would be true to say, has created mayhem on an industrial scale during his time in prison.

"He appears to revel in his own notoriety and has absolutely no comprehension how his behaviour and violent actions have affected others.

"It is also evident he has shown absolutely no remorse whatsoever for the numerous amounts of assaults on members of staff. I thought this was a prerequisite part of the parole application process."

During his public hearing earlier this month, Bronson admitted he had no remorse about taking the governor hostage.

He also revealed he had won £1,500 placing football bets behind bars and loved fighting in jail house brawls.

Bronson said: "I was born to have a rumble, I love to have a rumble.

"But I'm 70 now. It can become embarrassing. You have to grow up sooner or later."

But he vowed to never fight again if he walked free and claimed he plans to live like a "gentleman" in the country.

Bronson's vile rap sheet includes holding 11 people hostage across nine sieges – including governors, doctors and even his own solicitor.

He was first jailed, aged 21, for seven years in 1974 after being convicted of armed robbery.

He later attempted to strangle inmate Gordon Robinson while at secure psychiatric hospital Broadmoor, before causing £250,000 worth of damage when he staged a three-day protest on a rooftop.

The lag was released in 1987 but soon returned a year later for intent to commit robbery.

After holding three men hostage in his cell, the criminal saw another five years added to his sentence.

Following further acts of violence behind bars, he was finally given a life sentence after kidnapping prison teacher Phil Danielson in 1999.

Bronson was further sentenced to three years for assaulting a prison governor in 2014.
