'Melanie Shaw, the woman who was one of the first people to report historic sex abuse at Beechwood children's home, has been given a hospital order and will stay in Rampton to be treated.
The 48-year-old was sentenced today, Tuesday April 2, after setting fire to the bedding in her prison cell because she felt her human rights were being abused.
At Leeds Crown Court, she was given a section 37 hospital order, which means that she will be sent to hospital for treatment, rather than to prison.
But she was also given a section 41 restriction order, which can be added to a hospital order if the court feels the person is a risk to the public - and which has no fixed time limit.
Making the hospital order - which needs evidence from two doctors - Judge Penelope Belcher said that 40 pages of reports had been provided by the doctors, providing details of Shaw's medical history, background, previous convictions and attitude.
She said: "Both doctors are of the view this lady will respond to treatment, and there is a bed available.
"Both doctors are also of the view a section 41 restriction order is necessary. The order should be known as a restriction order.
"I have considered [Shaw's] previous convictions and the advice from the psychiatrists. In her current condition she is unable to control her conditions.
"It is clear when she does not receive what she wants she is liable to be threatening.
"It is necessary that a restriction order is made under section 41. [Shaw] will be given a hospital order and a restriction order."'
