One of three men who absconded from an open prison has been found in Bristol with serious facial injuries.

Paul Bromwich was last seen with Wayne Maycock, 33, and Admi Headley, 34, at HMP Leyhill at 16:45 GMT on Sunday.

Bromwich was found at 07:30 on Monday in Staple Hill. Maycock and Headley remain at large. Both are considered to be a "risk to the public".

Leyhill, near Wotton-under-Edge, is a category D prison housing more than 500 inmates, some on life sentences.

A police spokesperson said Bromwich had been assaulted in Page Road, Staple Hill and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may seen a fight in the area.

'Urgent investigation'

Headley was sentenced in 2006 for rape and robbery. Maycock was jailed in the same year for GBH. Bromwich was sentenced in 2001 for rape.

Earlier, the police force suggested all three were convicted of rape but this information was later amended.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: "Public protection is our top priority. We take absconds from custody extremely seriously. We are working closely with the police and are urgently investigating this incident."

Wayne Maycock is described as white, 6ft 3ins (1.9m) tall, of medium build with green eyes and brown hair. He has a tattoo on his right shoulder and scars on his forehead and both arms

Admi Headley is described as black, 5ft 10ins (1.77m) tall, of slim build with brown eyes and short black hair. He has a tattoo on his left arm

HMP Leyhill is the only minimum-security prison in the South West.
