A British prisoner suspected to have been infected with the China coronavirus after being extradited from a Thai jail is an alleged drug dealer, it has emerged.
The Guardian, says Mark Rumble, 31, reportedly flew back to the UK on January 27, to face charges of conspiracy to supply class A drugs after his arrest by Thai police last year.
He is understood to have collapsed in his cell at HMP Bullingdon, a category B prison in Oxfordshire, and rushed to hospital. At least two prisoners at the jail, which is on lockdown, have been tested for the disease.
The SUN reports that Rumble, of Wallingford, Oxfordshire, was arrested in Pattaya, Thailand, last November on suspicion of drugs offenses. On 20 February, he is due to enter a plea at Oxford crown court. The paper reports he is thought to deny the offenses.-Photo: Daily Mail.
