Caged Kinahan cartel boss Thomas “Bomber” Kavanagh is appealing his 21-year sentence amid rumours he is “desperate” to be moved to an Irish prison.

The crime gang’s second in command was jailed in England for conspiring to import €36million worth of drugs and is behind bars in Belmarsh – Britain’s toughest prison.

The 54-year-old, who enforced the Kinahans’ operations in the UK, had his legal team lodge an appeal against the jail term handed down to him to Ipswich Crown Court.

Earlier this week, Kavanagh was moved to maximum security facility Belmarsh Prison for “security reasons” and is now housed on the 48 single cell High Security Unit.

He is banged up alongside killer Michael Adebolajo, Islamic State sympathiser Ali Harbi Ali and Julian Assange who has been languishing at the jail for three years for breaching bail.

An administration officer at Ipswich Crown Court confirmed Kavanagh was appealing his prison term.
