Two men are on the run after absconding separately from HMP Leyhill in South Gloucestershire, police have said.

Kevin Gilbert walked out of the open prison on 7 June and Ruben Smith, 30, was last seen on 18 June.

Gilbert has family in the Gloucestershire area and bears various tattoos on his neck, arms and hands.

Smith has the name Emily tattooed on his upper right arm. Police said he has family in the Thames Valley area and may try to return there.

Neither man is considered a danger to the public but a spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said they were "keen to locate these men and return them to prison as soon as possible".
