Yorkshire Ripper loves Wii Bowling

Nintendo consoles installed in Broadmoor

Application security programs and practises

Even multiple murderers aren’t immune to the Wii bug: nearly two dozen of the Nintendo consoles have been installed at Blighty’s high-security psychiatric Broadmoor Hospital and Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe is a fan.

UK taxpayers have coughed up £5000 so that the facility’s inmates can while away their sentences with a spot of Manhunt 2 Mario.

A Broadmoor spokesman told The Sun that Wii Fit is part of a strategy to increase the amount of exercise inmates/patients get at the hospital.

Each Wii is fitted to a plasma TV -and costs the hospital roughly £180 to install, the newspaper said. Additional £25 Wii Remotes and games have also been ordered.

Sutcliffe – convicted in 1981 of murdering 13 women - has a fondness for Wii Bowling, a source at the Berkshire-based hospital told the newspaper, adding that the murderer has played the game while watched by Robert Napper, the killer of Rachel Nickell.

Cue some faux outrage: “This cash could have been spent improving care in the wider NHS... all we hear is laughter as patients play with their new toys,” the Sun's source added. ®
