A prisoner accused of going on the run while being treated for a head injury has appeared before magistrates.

Michal Kisiel, 30, is charged with escaping lawful custody, common assault and threatening an individual with a bladed article.

He was arrested on Wednesday after he was seen in Nunton, Wiltshire, some five miles from Salisbury Hospital.

Kisiel, originally from Poland, was remanded in custody to appear before the Salisbury Crown Court on 6 July.

Kisiel, who sometimes spells his first name Michael or uses the surname Kisier, has lived in Luton and is serving a five-year sentence at HMP Erlestoke near Devizes.
