Sean Brockhill, aged 42, threw the bucket of waste at the two officers at HMP Lindholme, at Hatfeld Woodhouse, Doncaster, according to a Sheffield Crown Court hearing on May 5.

Beverley Wright, prosecuting, said: “They were both standing near the bottom of stairs on this wing and discussing cleaning equipment.

“They both saw the defendant walk towards them and without any warning – and at a short distance from the officers but not close enough to touch – he threw the contents of a bucket towards them. It was clear it was excrement and urine.”

A prisoner at HMP Lindholme, pictured, has been given more time behind bars after he threw excrement and urine at two prison officers.

The waste landed on the face, eyes, mouth and arm of one officer and damaged his watch, according to Mrs Wright, and it landed on the arm and back of the other officer.

Mrs Wright added Brockhill told the officers he was sick of being wound-up and told police he had been going through a bad patch and wanted to get off that wing. He claimed he had been aiming at the wall.

Brockhill, of Hyde Park Road, Headingley, Leeds, who has previous convictions including an offence of throwing bodily fluids at a prison officer, pleaded guilty to two counts of administering a noxious substance after the incident in April 2019.

Edward Moss, defending, said Brockhill is remorseful and has progressed with addressing a drug-addiction and he had been considered for early release.

However, Judge Rachael Harrison sentenced Brockhill on his birthday to 16-months of custody.
