A prisoner who needed lifesaving surgery refused to go to hospital without his favourite teddy.

Barry Piper, an inmate at Wakefield high security jail is known as "a man who can look after himself".

But the hardened criminal staged a stand-off in the van waiting to rush him to hospital and demanded guards fetch the cuddly toy from his cell, saying: "I have to have my teddy."

Eventually the guards gave in and after the teddy was searched for contraband and handed to him, Piper - who is in his 60s - agreed to leave.
