Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson has set his sights on release following the news that his public parole hearing could take place as early as June or July this year.

The 69-year-old former bare-knuckle boxer and bloke once dubbed "the most violent prisoner in Britain" proudly declared "I'm coming home" during an new interview with The Mirror before revealing that he does daily exercises to ensure he's as fit as can be when he takes his first steps as a free man.

The prisoner - famously portrayed on screen by star Tom Hardy in Nicolas Winding Refn's 2009 biopic Bronson - has spent more than four decades banged up in various prisons and is currently housed at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes.

One of the UK's longest-serving prisoners has been granted a Parole Board hearing which will take place in public next year.

Charles Bronson, 69, who now uses the name Salvador, is serving a life term at HMP Woodhill in Buckinghamshire.

Reforms in the law allowing hearings to take place in public were introduced in July.

The Parole Board said it granted an application made by his lawyers for his latest case review is heard in public.

Charles Bronson: Britain's most notorious prisoner launches art exhibition in hopes of new parole bid

It comes before the Parole Board will be asked to decide what level of risk Bronson is to the public next month, with some believing his ability to work and earn money as an artist and support himself could help his parole bid.

Hundreds of Charles Bronson's cartoonish drawings are going on show and sale, with prices ranging from £700 to £30,000 for a multiple set of images.

Many depict the prisoner's often nightmarish view of his own life through 47 years in jail, much of it in special secure isolation units.

Charles Bronson, one of the UK's longest-serving prisoners, would not cope with being released, a Parole Board panel has heard.

The 70-year-old, one of the UK's most violent offenders, has been in prison for much of the last 50 years.

He told the panel he had had "more porridge than Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and I'm sick of it".

The first witness, his prison offender manager, said Bronson would not have the skills to cope with being released.

The panel heard that he spends 23 hours a day in his cell and only associates with three other inmates who he does not get on with.

Charles Bronson could be ready for release, says former prison officer

Known by many as "Britain's most violent prisoner", Charles Bronson has spent almost 50 years in jail. The armed robber turned artist, now 70, is awaiting a decision by the Parole Board on whether he can be freed. One man who knows him better than most is former prison officer Roy Kirk, who was assigned to look after him for almost a decade.

Prisoner Charles Bronson has lost a Parole Board bid to be freed from jail.

The decision comes after one of the UK’s longest-serving prisoners – who changed his surname to Salvador in 2014 – took part in one of the country’s first public parole hearings earlier this month.

In a document detailing the decision published on Thursday, the Parole Board said: “After considering the circumstances of his offending, the progress that Mr Salvador has made while in custody and the evidence presented at the hearings, the panel was not satisfied that Mr Salvador was suitable for release. Nor did the panel recommend to the secretary of state that he should be transferred to an open prison.”
