Charlie Bronson hopes to move to Costa del Sol and open a pub


Charlie Bronson hopes to move to Spain and open a pub when he finally gets out of jail.The 58-year-old former Ellesmere Port resident wants to buy a bar on the Costa del Sol – and has already talked over plans with his brother Mark Peterson, who lives near Aberystwyth, Wales.Mark said: “He would love to end up running a bar in Spain.“But first he plans to settle with me to be near our mother Eira who is now 78.”A prison source told Sunday newspaper The People: “Bronson has been talking about moving to the Costa del Sol when he gets out of prison for ages now.“It has always been a bit of a Utopia for prisoners and criminals and he thinks he would live the rest of his life there.”Bronson is currently awaiting a parole board hearing after being transferred to Category C Long Lartin prison, Worcestershire, from top-security Wakefield prison.He was initially jailed for armed robbery in 1974 but a series of attacks and hostage-taking kept him locked-up and earned him the reputation of the country’s most violent inmate.Labelled Britain’s most dangerous prisoner, he has been the subject of a film – Bronson – which is partly autobiographical and partly surreal fantasy.Earlier this year on it’s cinema release, his family, some of whom still live in Ellesmere Port, travelled to London to watch the premiere of the movie, which has been accused of glorifying his violent acts.It is due out on DVD soon. Aside from a few months of freedom, Bronson has spent 34 years behind bars, most in solitary confinement.
