A woman prison custody officer who was allegedly assaulted as she escorted a prisoner at a crown court has died.

Lorraine Barwell, 54, who worked for Serco, was attacked as she escorted a prisoner between London’s Blackfriars Crown Court and a waiting van parked in the courtyard on Monday.

An air ambulance was called and she was treated at the scene before being taken to an east London hospital, but Scotland Yard said today she has died.

Humphrey Burke, 22, of no fixed abode, appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and was remanded to appear at the Old Bailey on July 15.
