High-security hospital Broadmoor – which is home to some of the UK's most notorious killers – has issued 22 Nintendo Wiis to inmates in an effort to help keep them fit whilst they undergo treatment.

A source at Broadmoor claims that Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe has been spied playing the bowling game on Wii Sports.

The Sun's original story prefers to focus on the fact that 5,000 of taxpayer's money has been splashed on the equipment. The paper also claims that inmates already have access to PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

When you think of their crimes and the misery they have caused, you have to ask if it's right for society to pay to entertain them,” a source affirmed.

This cash could have been spent improving care in the wider NHS. In the meantime all we hear is laughter as patients play with their new toys.”
