A man who absconded from a prison and was the third to go missing in a week has been found and taken into custody, Kent Police have said.

Paul Stone, 36, who comes from the Medway area, failed to return to HMP Standford Hill, in Eastchurch on the Isle of Sheppey, on Monday.

He was being sought by police after absconding from the prison between 08:00 and 12:15 GMT, officers said.

The force said on Wednesday he had been found and taken into custody.

Two other male prisoners who escaped from the jail last Wednesday are still at large, police said.
