A prisoner who was jailed for 12 years for armed robberies has absconded from a Surrey prison.

Graham Richard Farrell, 48, was last seen getting on a London Victoria-bound train at Swanley in Kent on Friday.

He was serving a 12 year sentence at HMP Coldingley in Bisley for a series of armed robberies and other violent offences in London.

A spokesman for Surrey Police said: "He should not be approached directly by a member of the public."

He absconded while he was out on day release from the category C prison.

The force said Farrell had connections to Kent and south-east London. It has appealed for anyone with information to contact officers.

Farrell has been described as white, 5ft 5in tall and of a medium build. He has blue eyes, short brown hair and a tattoo of a Thai character on his right arm.
