The second of three prisoners who absconded from an open jail has been arrested.

Avon and Somerset Police said Wayne Maycock, 33, was detained overnight after leaving HMP Leyhill in South Gloucestershire.

Maycock, Paul Bromwich, 54, and Admi Headley, 34, were last seen at the Category D prison on Sunday afternoon.

Bromwich was detained in the Staple Hill area of Bristol on Monday morning but Headley remains at large.

Police said the three men, who have links to the Manchester area, were serving sentences for crimes including rape, grievous bodily harm and robbery.

Headley, 34, is described as black, 5ft 10ins (1.5m) tall, of slim build with brown eyes and short black hair. He has a tattoo on his left arm.

Their disappearance comes less than a week after two men escaped from HMP Pentonville in north London, although both have now been apprehended.

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