HMP Wakefield prisoner Jeremy Bamber will spend his 59th birthday in prison with notorious criminals Ian Watkins and Ian Huntley.
Jeremy Bamber was found guilty of the murders of his parents, his sister and her six-year-old twin sons in October 1986 – but has always maintained his innocence.
The convicted killer turns 59 today and will be spending his 34th birthday behind bars at the Category A men's prison in West Yorkshire.
His birthday falls just two days before the second episode of ITV’s drama White House Farm airs on TV, which tells the story of the gruesome August 1985 murders.

Prosecutors believe Bamber plotted to take the lives of five of his relatives for financial gain, hoping to inherit the White House Farm estate by getting rid of all his close relatives.
His adoptive parents Nevill and June Bamber were found dead, along with his adoptive sister Sheila Caffell and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas.
Police believe Bamber used a silencer fixed to the end of a weapon to muffle the sound of gunshots as he made his way through the farmhouse.
Bamber, who has been described as a self-obsessed narcissist, continues to maintain his innocence as he launches a third appeal against his conviction.

But lawyers for the convicted murderer are believed to of contacted ITV ahead of the documentary to provide the channel with "new forensic reports and fresh evidence".
But for now, Bamber will remain behind bars at HMP Wakefield with some of the UK’s most infamous criminals.
As of 2018, Lostprophets sex offender Ian Watkins is locked up at Wakefield, serving out 29 years imprisonment for multiple sickening crimes, including plotting to rape a baby.
Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13, three counts of sexual assault involving children, and six involving taking, making or possessing indecent images of children and one of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving a sex act on an animal.

Schoolgirl killer Ian Huntley is also serving out his 40-year sentence at HMP Wakefield, having been jailed for the 2002 Soham murders.
Evil Huntley murdered schoolgirls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells, aged 10, after luring them into his house.
Charles Bronson dubbed "the most violent prisoner in Britain" also spent time at Wakefield and had stints in notorious Broadmoor and high-security psychiatric hospital Ashworth.
In 2019, Bronson sought permission from Woodhill prison near Milton Keynes to attend the funeral of his former wife Paula Williamson.
