A BARNSLEY man has had his prison sentence extended after he threw faeces in a prison officer's face.

Lee Wilcock, 34, formerly of Thurnscoe, appeared at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court last week (January 26) after pleading guilty to assaulting the prison officer at HMP Lindholme, Doncaster.

He was sentenced to a further 23 weeks in prison, added to his current nine year sentence for an aggravated burglary in 2014.
