Jailed former MP Denis Macshane has revealed he felt someone ‘had it in’ for him after he spent six weeks in a high security prison.

The former Rotherham MP speaks of his first few days behind bars after he was sentenced last year for making bogus expenses claims worth £12,900 in his diaries, which are being published.

He has written of how he was locked up alongside gangsters and killers at Belmarsh prison before he was moved to Brixton, rather than doing his time in an open jail like some other politicians have.
