Tragic Star Hobson’s cruel mum is being moved to a new prison after inmates told her to “get out of Yorkshire”.

Frankie Smith is caged at HMP New Hall, near Flockton, after she was found guilty of allowing the death of her 16-month-old daughter.

According to prison sources, she could be moved 200 miles away, is unable to work inside because of threats and spends most of her time inside her cell.

It could see her being sent to HMP Bronzefield, an adult and young offender all-female prison on the outskirts of Ashford in Surrey.

A prison source told The Mirror : “Smith is currently kept in her cell most of the time. She hasn’t been cleared to work due to threats from the other women.

“They can’t forgive her for the suffering that little girl went through.”

Star was killed in September 2020 after months of “neglect, cruelty and injury” at the hands of Smith and partner Savannah Brockhill.

Bradford Crown Court heard the toddler had suffered “catastrophic” injuries at Keighley home.

Brockhill, 28, was jailed for life in December for murdering Star, with a 25-year minimum. Smith, 20, got eight years for allowing her daughter’s death.

Sources said the cost of ­moving Smith to HMP Bronzefield – the UK’s biggest female jail – would be justified to ensure her safety.

They added: “Bronzefield has other high-profile inmates, mostly from the south, so she’s less likely to be a target.”

Bronzefield, near Ashford, Surrey, also houses Shauna Hoare – jailed over the death of Becky Watts, 16, in 2015.

Others there include Safiyya Amira Shaikh, Britain’s first female Islamic State bomb plotter and al-Qaeda fanatic Roshonara Choudhry, who tried to murder MP Stephen Timms in 2010.
