A SICK nurse branded the Angel of Death for murdering four patients with lethal injections has launched a foodbank from prison, reports claim.

Colin Norris was caged for life in 2008 after killing Doris Ludlam, 80, Ethel Hall, 86, Bridget Bourke, 88, and Irene Crookes, 79, with huge insulin overdoses.

The 40-year-old is now convincing lags at notorious HMP Frankland to sign up his Food Bank Initiative, which he has dubbed "the FBI".

According to the Sunday Mirror, Norris has given around 350kg of non-perishable goods – amounting to 450 meals for families - since 2017.

The murderer, who has changed his name to Colin Campbell, said cons use it to help with Sentence Plans which are vital if they want be released.

Norris said: "I think we can all agree that as a nation we should not even have such things as foodbanks in the 21st century in one of the seven richest nations on earth.

"However, the reality is that we do. Unlike other charitable donations, money, at least we can guarantee that 100 per cent of the donation goes to the recipient in need.”

Norris was convicted in 2008 of killing the four pensioners at hospitals in Leeds after moaning to friends and colleagues he hated elderly patients.

He also attempted to murder 90-year-old Vera Wilby but she survived.

Norris started his foodbank at Frankland - home to Levi Bellfield, Soham monster Ian Huntley and Lee Rigby’s killer Michael Adebolajo - in 2017.

One prisoner wrote in lag mag Inside Time claiming one foodbank charity even donated a £150 cheque and sent a thank you note.

Kelly Smith, food supply manager at Durham Foodbank, said she had received donations from Norris's FBI but did not deal directly with him.

She also insisted the food donated is tested to ensure it hasn't been tampered with.

Ms Smith told the Mirror: "We’ve had four donations from him. We’ve never dealt with a prison before. It’s not the sort of place you would have expected to get donations.

“It’s the places you least expect where you get donations. It’s often those who have had experience of hardships.”

Norris has always insisted he was innocent with the foreman of the jury who convicted him speaking out to defend him in 2015.

The juror spoke out after a Panorama investigation suggested the women may have died of natural causes.
