A man has been caught posting photos of himself to Instagram from prison.

Keelan ‘Zane’ Burke, who is on remand for allegedly attacking a woman, broke prison rules by posting pictures of himself on Instagram.

Prison officials have confirmed an investigation will take place after Burke, 22, uploaded the images to social media using an illegal phone smuggled into HMP Featherstone, near Wolverhampton.

An anonymous acquaintance of Burke said: "He has no shame; he just cannot stop thinking of himself as a model even though he is behind bars."

Burke captioned pictures of himself with phrases such as "visit ready" and "living the dream" in a bid to improve his image from his prison cell, he also posted images of fellow prisoners calling them “mandems”.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “We do not tolerate the use of mobile phones in our prisons.

"We have since requested the account is removed and we are punishing those responsible.

“We are investing millions in measures to prevent mobiles getting into prisons and anyone found with one can face extra time behind bars.”

Burke was accused of slashing a woman on Christmas Eve last year which led to a two week manhunt ending in Scotland.

He has since been posting the images whilst in custody, after being charged with assault and wounding with intent.

Burke, formally of Willenhall, was signed up to modelling agencies Maverick Models and the Model Bank.

He will remain in custody ahead of his case at Wolverhampton Crown Court on June 10.
