A convicted UK rapist who is reportedly serving a life sentence has been moved to a women-only prison.

The rapist identified as Martin Ponting had a sex change while in prison to become a woman.

His name is now Jessica Martina Winfield.

According to BBC in 2007 while in one of Britain's toughest prisons, Whitemoor Prison, Martina once complained that she never felt right being a man.

She felt "like a female trapped in a male body."

Martina was moved to HMP Bronzefield in Ashford, Surrey.
