Man charged with helping prisoner escape HMP Pentonville

A man has been charged with helping a prisoner escape from Pentonville jail.

Scott O'Reilly, 48, of Shepherd's Lane, Hackney, has been charged with assisting an offender, the Metropolitan Police said.

He has been bailed to attend Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on 13 April.

Two others have been charged in connection with the prison escape in November last year. A 19-year-old was arrested and bailed but will face no further action.
