A prisoner from Manchester, on the run since 1 April after absconding from day release, has been caught.

David Patmore, 26, from Blackley, was discovered at a house in Whitefield following a tip-off to police.

Patmore, who was sentenced to 16 years for armed robbery in 2004, had been on a day's release from HMP Sudbury, Derbyshire, when he absconded.

He had been allowed to visit a house in Stretford, but failed to reappear. The BBC's Crimewatch featured the escape.
