A vicious Scots convict who tried to kill three cops in a stolen BMW is gloating about his life behind bars on an Instagram account.

Robert Wemyss, 29, was jailed for 10 years in 2013 for trying to mow down officers in Aberdeenshire.

The brazen body-building thug is freely posting photographs and videos to an Instagram account from inside HMP Grampian in Peterhead.

And the cocky criminal boasts: “Good tae keep in contact with my brothers in other hotels.”

In 2018 a probe was launched when Wemyss used Facebook to label a fellow prisoner a “grass” in a short video.

Then he dubbed HMP Grampian as “The Grampian Resort” and posted pictures of prisoners sunbathing.

Today Scottish Prison Service chiefs confirmed to the Record they were aware of the alleged activity.

An SPS spokeswoman said: “The possession of a mobile phone in prison is a criminal offence.

“If we receive information to suggest that prisoners are in possession of such devices we will take all appropriate action and report it to the relevant authorities.”

Wemyss was just 22 when he was given an extended sentence at the High Court in Dumbarton in 2013.

He was found guilty of car theft, dangerous driving and attempted murder.

In 2012 he stole a BMW X5 in Aberdeen and drove along footpaths and grass verges as he pursued the police through several streets.

He overtook a bus and pursued an unmarked police car, which he crashed into – then drove at the three officers when they got out of the vehicle.

Wemyss was jailed for 10 years with a five year extension period added.
