Last night it emerged that prison officers at the Maze had warned their governors that republican inmates were planning an attack on the block where loyalist terrorist Billy Wright was shot by rooftop gunmen last month.

The BBC's Newsnight produced a memorandum written to governors in September which said: "Due to recent threats from the INLA that they will burn H6 if the LVF are returned ... staff are extremely concerned about the ease of access to H6 roof."
