MOBSTER Thomas ‘Bomber’ Kavanagh has been moved to a prison which once housed infamous criminal Reggie Kray.

Kavanagh, who was last week sentenced to 21 years in prison for conspiracy to import Class A and Class B Drugs, had been locked up in cushy HM Prison Dovegate near Staffordshire until recently.

During yesterday’s Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) hearing against Kavanagh in Dublin’s High Court, it emerged that the mob boss has been moved to HM Prison in Norwich.

The prison is far stricter than the relatively calmer Dovegate, where prisoners are treated to “animal therapy”, a hedgehog farm and art classes.

Kavanagh is now considered a Category C prisoner – upgraded from a Category B prisoner who is allowed to stay in a more open prison regime.

A Category C prisoner “cannot be trusted in open conditions” according to the UK’s prison system, but are considered “unlikely” to make an escape bid from a maximum security facility.
