Jack Shepherd, speedboat murderer, has been moved to category A prison. He will be serving the remainder of his sentence with Wayne Couzens (ex-police officer who killed Sarah Everard) and other inmates.
According to Mirror, Shepherd is currently a HMP Frankland inmate.
Other prisoners in County Durham jail include Soham murderer Ian Huntley as well as serial killer Levi Bellfield.
“He writes to his family, friends, and gets on well with other inmates. According to a source, prison has been an humbling experience.

Charlotte Brown (24 years old) was killed in 2015 when Shepherd’s boat capsized near Wandsworth Bridge.
After meeting through OkCupid, Ms Brown was from Clacton in Essex and went on her first date to Shepherd.
Shepherd’s 10-year sentence was reduced to 78 days in July 2020 because he spent time waiting for extradition from the UK.
The three appeal judges ruled that Shepherd’s 78-days in Georgian custody while awaiting extradition should be counted towards the sentence he was serving.
Shepherd faced trial on July 18, 2018. The jury heard that he bought the boat in the 1980s from Gumtree, and was trying to impress women with it.
However, his first date with Ms Brown turned tragic when her 14ft Fletcher Arrowflyte GTO was damaged and hit a tree. It capsized, causing them to be thrown in the Wandsworth Bridge.
Later, he drew outrage when he launched an appeal against his conviction in Georgia while on the run – and was granted funds.
