Two more criminals have gone on the run from an open prison, meaning six have now absconded in the last week.

Patrick Pugh, 24, and Adam Yaroo, 28, disappeared from HMP Sudbury in Derbyshire on Monday.

Last week four other men absconded from the Category D jail.

Figures obtained by the Press Association following the latest spate of inmates going on the run revealed 28 prisoners are currently missing from the prison.

Pugh, a convicted robber, had been sentenced to four years in prison.

Missing since 1992

He has a tattoo of praying hands with rosary beads on his left arm and 'RIP Scotty always loved' on the left side of his neck.

Derbyshire Police said he has links to Shropshire.

The second prisoner, Adam Yaroo was convicted for burglary in 2012 and sentenced to four years.

The force said his last known address was in Kent and he also has links to London.

Others on the run from the prison include a prisoner who has been missing for more than 20 years after being allowed out in 1992.

Glyn Travis, spokesman for the Prison Officers Association, previously said the absconds were "not surprising" but showed the prison system was "broken and needs fixing".
