Police have arrested a 26-year-old Bristol man who absconded from HMP Prescoed in south Wales last month.

Brian Grady was convicted of killing Liam Attwell in the Canon's Marsh area of Bristol in 2003.

He was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court to serve at least 11 years for murder and robbery.

Grady failed to return to the Category D HMP Prescoed after walking out of the building, near Usk in Monmouthshire, on 14 January.

On 18 January a 34-year-old Bristol woman appeared before magistrates in Caerphilly charged with helping Grady escape from prison.

Police are taking no further action against a 37-year-old Bristol man who had also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Speaking shortly after Grady absconded Monmouth MP David Davies criticised the risk assessment which allowed him to be moved to an open prison even though he was shortly due for release.

Grady, who is also known as Brian Revill, is currently in police custody but will be shortly returned to the prison service, Gwent Police said.
