Cancer sufferer Perry Coppins said he was at "death's door" after authorities withdrew medication he has had for 21 years, and the only reason he survived was 'down to the kindness of other prisoners.' Mr Coppins was handcuffed and taken to a police station where he was given a drugs test. Mr Coppins said he slept on concrete throughout his time in prison, although he said he can't remember too much of his experience because of how ill he was. However, Mr Coppins remains concerned about his physical and mental health after what he went through and told the Post he is "never leaving England again". DiD chief executive Radha Stirling previously said Mr Coppins had lost 20kg in weight and was suffering hallucinations, pain, stress and blindness.
