ARTICLE SNIPPET: Terror suspects held at one of Britains most secure jails are secretly accessing the internet to contact their supporters.
The discovery raises fears that some of the UKs most dangerous terrorists could be plotting new attacks from inside prison.
The serious security breach was revealed last week after The Mail on Sunday was alerted to messages on a private website linked to militant Islamic movement Al-Muhajiroun, which has been banned under anti-terror laws.
The threatening emails were apparently sent from inside Belmarsh high-security prison in South-East London, which houses some of Britains most feared terror suspects.
It is thought inmates are sending the illicit messages using smuggled mobile phones, many of which now allow access to the internet.
