A killer who went missing from a Scottish prison following a period of home release has been found in England.

Simon Brown, 45, failed to return to HMP Castle Huntly near Dundee, on Tuesday.

In 2012, along with Paul Banks, he was jailed for eight years for the murder of John Carter in Edinburgh before leaving his body in a lift at a block of flats.

Police had warned the public not to approach him.
