A 32-year-old prisoner has denied three charges of attempted murder after alleged assaults inside three prisons.
Aklakur Rahman is charged with attempting to murder prison officer Derek Walker and fellow inmate David Sutton following an incident at Wayland Prison, near Watton, on July 21, 2017.
Both Mr Sutton, from Canvey Island, and Mr Walker were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital following the incident.
Mr Sutton, 30, required stitches to a neck wound and prison officer Walker later received a bravery award from the Royal Humane Society for his actions during the incident.
