Missing Prisoner Gives Himself Up

A criminal who failed to return an open prison has been detained after handing himself in at a police station in London.

Leon Brown, who was serving a six-and-a-half year sentence for firearms offences at Hollesley Bay in Suffolk, had been given leave to go to an address in South Ockendon, Essex, on Monday and was due to return by 3.30pm yesterday.
