Police appealed for information when Billy Sullivan, 33, failed to return to Highpoint Prison on 16 December.

He is serving an eight-year sentence for wounding and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Police said he was arrested at Sudbury Police Station on Tuesday. He will now be returned to the prison service, they added.
