An escaped prisoner was wearing brightly coloured jail clothing when he fled, it has been revealed.

Police hunting murder suspect John Anslow have issued images of the blue and yellow top and trousers he had on.

Mr Anslow, 31, was being transported to Stafford Crown Court when he escaped from a van close to HMP Hewell Grange, near Bromsgrove, on 23 January.

A £10,000 reward has been offered for information about the escape of Mr Anslow, who comes from Tipton.

The other car was a silver VW Scirocco, which was then abandoned.

Police have also released more details of the route taken by the Mercedes.

They said it travelled north along the B4096 Hewell Lane on to Alcester Road to the M42 Junction 1 island.

A 44-year-old man has been bailed in connection with the case on suspicion of assisting an offender.

The case was featured on Crimewatch and Staffordshire Police said it had received more than 100 calls in total.

The force carried out seven searches in the Tipton area, but the suspect remains at large.

Four other men have also been charged with Mr Deakin's murder.
