One of Stephen Lawrence’s killers was attacked by two other inmates in a ‘planned attack’ leaving him with scars on his face, reports say.

David Norris, 46, was found with blood pouring from his face after two other inmates slashed him ‘from his forehead to his chin’ it has been claimed.

Prison officers had to move in and drag Norris to safety as the killer ‘howled in agony’ according to The Sun.

It comes just weeks after he is said to have got hold of a smartphone and sent prison cell selfies to friends outside.

The pair of inmates are said to have cornered him outside his cell before setting upon him with makeshift ‘shanks’ — knives made from razor blades melted into prison toothbrushes.

The attack happened at Dartmoor prison just after 8.30am on Sunday.

Norris was taken to hospital where doctors said he may be ‘permanently disfigured’.

One source told The Sun: ‘Norris didn’t stand a chance. He was cut up badly. There was a lot of blood.’

Norris – who is apparently nicknamed ‘Nozza’ – has been placed in segregation away from other prisoners, while officers search the cells and attempt to shut down any social media accounts linked to him.

Five men were arrested over Stephen’s racist murder after he was stabbed to death aged 18 in Eltham, south-east London, in 1993.

Just two of his killers, Norris and Gary Dobson, were brought to justice. Both were given life sentences in 2012.

In May, a bid to move Norris to an open prison was blocked by then-justice secretary Dominic Raab amid fears he still posed a risk to the public.

Norris allegedly ranted about Raab on WhatsApp, telling his friends: ‘Dom Raab your f***** c*** cos the Nozza is defo home in 2 [years] and High Court now agrees. Get that party sorted girls cos I be there soon.’
