These shocking images show how easy it is for prisoners to take photographs of themselves inside jail and share them with friends, boasting about the luxuries they enjoy inside - even though mobile phones are supposed to be strictly banned inside prison.

Dozens of photos uploaded to Facebook show prisoners boasting of a cushy prison lifestyle with access to TVs, gaming consoles and gyms, while eating food that includes curries, kebabs, birthday cakes and crisps.

Despite being imprisoned for heinous crimes that include murder, robbery and arson, inmates are able to easily smuggle in smartphones and thumb their noses at authorities as they post updates and photos of themselves from the comfort of their jail cells.

One example is Sonny Barker, 20. Barker was jailed for eight years after he held a mother and daughter at knifepoint during a burglary. But last year the serial offender managed to smuggle a phone into his cell at HMP Rochester in Kent to show off his cushy surroundings.

In pictures posted on Facebook, he posed with cellmate Korrel Kennedy - a former Jean Paul Gaultier model jailed for chasing a man with a knife and threatening hospital staff.

The images show the two of them posing in their underpants, flexing their muscles and joking with each other in front of a TV, Playstation 2 and mini-fridge.

Four days ago it emerged brutal murderer Jamie Bain sent smirking selfies from his prison cell to several women just weeks after marrying his childhood sweetheart.

Bain, 30, was sentenced to life with a minimum of 22 years after he gunned down former boxing champion Alex McKinnon at the Marmion pub in Edinburgh in 2006.

The killer sent pictures of himself next to a rack of expensive trainers while enjoying home comforts like television and a music system inside his cell at Shotts prison in Lanarkshire.

Bain was sent to jail for bursting into the Edinburgh pub and producing a double-barrelled sawn-off shotgun concealed down his trouser leg.

He was wearing an ice hockey mask when he shot Mr McKinnon's brother-in-law James Hendry before firing at the 32-year-old former boxer as he turned to flee.

Bain married his long-term fiancee in prison in July but has continued to send photographs - where he poses beside expensive trainers, a television and a music system - to a string of different women

In 2010, arsonist Brendan Rawsthorn used a smuggled mobile phone to post updates on Facebook boasting of a life playing computer games, drinking homebrew and enjoying sleep-ins.

On the page he described himself as a ‘down to earth jail bird’ who is ‘doing time for the Queen! Making Money!’.

The HMP Wolds prisoner, who was jailed in 2006 for starting a fire at a Lancashire builder's merchants that caused £200,000 damage, was subjected to a police investigation after the pictures surfaced.

Rawsthorn is serving an indeterminate sentence for public protection on November 24, 2006 for offences of arson, criminal damage and assault.

Barratt was part of a gang that went on a crime spree, committing sixteen serious crimes in six weeks. Right, a picture of convicted murderer Zac Malavin, who is serving time in prison for the murder of Andrew Curran

It was in 2009 that Kane Barratt, then aged 20, posted shots of himself with fellow prisoners from inside Lancaster Prison. The photos, which surfaced on Facebook, showed him posing alongside two other people, all of whom were shirtless.

It sparked outrage from his victim Paul Dillon, who said he was 'absolutely appalled' that security was so poor that Barratt was able to use a phone.

Mr Dillon was watching TV at home with his wife when Barrat and three others burst in wielding machetes and held a knife to his throat as they stole his car. He was jailed for a minimum of five-and-a-half years.

Murderer Jamal Dyce was jailed for life in 2008 for the stabbing of Philip Armstrong. But late last year he posted photos on Facebook of himself larking around in HMP Gartree, in Leicester.

In the posts, he boasted of drinking alcohol, how he 'bulks up' in the gym and watches football matches behind bars.

Dyce was jailed for a minimum of 12 years in 2008 for stabbing to death labourer Philip Armstrong in a fight over a mobile phone.

In one photo, the killer can be seen being lifted up by a man he calls 'Dog'. And in a string of Facebook posts - all posted via mobile phone - Dyce boasts about watching Champions League football and Match of the Day on TV, tucking into a beef curry and going to the gym.

Liam Whitnell is serving a life sentence for stabbing a 24-year-old man in front of his family.

But in photos posted on Facebook earlier this year, the killer showcases a life of luxury that includes him being served a birthday cake, chatting on his phone and a kebab and soft drink.

The killer is also pictured speaking on the phone in a cell that boasts a stereo, a games console and cupboard full of DVDs.

As well as sharing photos of himself, he posted a picture of the birthday cake and a kebab and soft drink he supposedly had delivered to celebrate his 31st birthday at Wandsworth Prison.

Whitnell, of Stepney, east London, was jailed for a minimum of 24 years in 2013. Along with three other accomplices he had attacked Kowshar Hussain with knives and a wheel brace in 2011 – in what a judge described as the killing of a ‘totally innocent family man’.

Thief Adam Ghali posted an astonishing 'review' of Camp Hill Prison on the Isle of Wight in a series of Facebook posts in 2009.

He claimed he was on a 'holiday' for the Queen Majesty and it was a five star resort with 'ensuite facilities' - but wifi coverage 'leaves a lot to be desired'.

Photos accompanying the posts showed Ghali posing shirtless with pictures of scantily clad women covering the wall behind him. 

Ghali was serving an 18 month prison sentence at the time after he burst into a newsagent and threatened staff before escaping with hundreds of pounds in cash.

And notorious British gangster Domenyk Noonan made a mockery of prison rules in 2009 when a photo surfaced of him nonchalantly grinning from the confines of his high security prison cell.

Prison officials reportedly launched an investigation after it was revealed he was updating his Facebook page from the cell. Noonan, who has since changed his name by deed poll, was serving a a nine year sentence for gun possession at Frankland Prison in County Durham.

Killer Dale Done posted half naked selfies from behind bars. Like many others before him, he boasted of his easy life drinking, taking drugs and playing computer games.

Done was jailed for eight years in 2009 when he admitted to causing the death of his best friend Daniel Harding, 17, after he crashed a stolen car in Liverpool.

After three years he was released on parole, but breached his licence conditions and was jailed again.

In 2012 a shocking set of photos emerged showing teenage murderer Liam Ryan in a jail cell packed with rows of toiletries and snack food.

Ryan, 21, was serving a life sentence at a young Offenders' institute in Brinsford for the murder of Birmingham shopkeeper Suppiah Tharmaseelan, a father-of-four.

But in a series of photographs - illicitly taken because inmates are not allowed mobile phones, computers or cameras in their cells - Ryan is seen making gangster salutes and showing off his possessions.

One image shows row after row of toiletries such as shampoo and body soaps - stacked neatly next to a TV and Playstation 2. Another image shows a table full of junk food. He is also photographed posing for the camera.

Also uploaded to his Facebook page was a photo of rows and rows of toiletries (left), and a table full of food and snacks (right)

There is also mobile phone footage purportedly taken of footballer Lee Hughes whilst in Featherstone Prison in 2005.

Hughes, who spent three years in prison for causing death by dangerous driving, can be seen smiling at the camera, dancing to music and continually sticking his fingers up to the camera to the enjoyment of fellow inmates.

And two years ago prisoner Luke Anderson managed to get hold of a mobile phone and posted a slew of tweets about his 'holiday' behind bars.

He contacted friends, telling them: 'I'm on twitter facebook watsapp and bbm [talk] to me #jails easy'.

Despite vowing never to return to jail again once he was released, Anderson described his life as being on 'Costa del Haverigg'.

His friend who asked him: 'How are you on Twitter in jail' before adding: 'I’m going to write a letter of complaint to HMP Haverigg for this, it’s terrible!'.

When approached for comment regarding the rules of mobile phone use in prisons, a Prison Service spokesperson said: 'We have made clear that it is totally unacceptable for prisoners to access social networking sites or instruct others to do so on their behalf.

'Prisoners should not be in any doubt - if they break the rules they will be stripped of their privileges and could face further disciplinary action.'

Lizanne, Brighton, United Kingdom, 5 hours ago

I was married to a Ghanian who, when he left me to return to Ghana fleeced numerous credit card/mortgage companies out of hundreds of thousands of pounds. He even posed as a debt collector to his own Mum and stole £50,000 from her. He remortgaged our house before he left leaving me and his 3 children penniless and homeless (our home was repossessed) all this happened 20 years ago and not once did he spend one penny to support his family. My husband was never punished even after I wrote to Jerry Rawlings (president in ghana at the time) fraudulent activity seems to be a way of life in Ghana so I am delighted that at least one Ghanian has been brought to justice.

:lmao:
