The Sun can reveal SERIAL killer Levi Bellfield is being watched 24/7 after a failed suicide attempt, The Sun can reveal.
Sources say monster53 years old, “seconds before death” after attempting to hang himself in his cell.
He was discovered by prison staff alerted at nightfall on Thursday at HMP Frankland’s top security agency, Co Durham.
Bellfield, incarcerated for three murders including schoolgirl Milly Dowler, was last night recuperating in the prison’s healthcare wing.
A source told The Sun: “If the employee isn’t around, he’s going to be a walker.
“Thanks to their quick action alone, he is alive today.
“He had a very narrow exit.”
The former Bellfield nightclub security guard was alone in his cell before committing his suicide on Thursday night.
He’d hoped to be undisturbed – only to have his own life efforts fail at the last minute.
Bellfield last made a “pitiful” attempt at suicide in October 2019.
But a source added: “This is a much more determined endeavor.
“He’s seemed a bit down in recent weeks, but most people alive have their moments.
“Clearly this time he really wanted to end it all.”
Bellfield, who now calls himself Yusuf Rahim, is one of around 70 villains serving a lifetime sentence in England and Wales.
He was jailed for life in 2008 for killing 19-year-old Marsha McDonnell in 2003 and 22-year-old Amelie Delagrange in 2004.
In 2011, he was also found guilty of killing 13-year-old Milly in 2002.
