A man from Cambridgeshire who allegedly fled from court minutes before being convicted of attacking a taxi driver has been arrested, police have said.

Curtis King, 23, of Cavendish Street, Peterborough, was found guilty at Huntingdon Crown Court of causing actual bodily harm.

He was arrested on Saturday at a police station in Peterborough on suspicion of failing to appear in court.
