HMP Peterborough jailbreak inmate scaled wall 'like Spiderman'

A convicted child sex offender scaled a prison wall “like Spiderman” to make his escape from HMP Peterborough.

CCTV footage shows Gintautas Urbonas, 52, escaping on 26 January by climbing up against a gate and scaling the high wall using a light, a pipe, a satellite dish – and a rope made of face towels.

He was recaptured in Peterborough two days later and on Tuesday was sent back to continue his 12-year sentence – with an additional 16 months added for the escape referred to in a police statement as "like Spiderman".
