Suffolk: Escaped Prisoner May Have Left County
Police are continuing to search for two men after a prisoner escaped at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds last night, Wednesday 25th January.
Officers received 999 calls around 6.50pm to reports that prison staff had been threatened by a man with a gun and that a prisoner they had been transporting to the hospital for treatment had escaped.
No one was hurt in the incident
Police immediately began a search for the two men.
This morning they are continuing to search for the prisoner 26-year-old Andrew Farndon who had sustained a wound to his shoulder, and the man with the gun.
It's now thought likely that the pair may have left Suffolk and, although police are still carrying out local enquiries in case they are still in the county, officers are also liaising with other forces across the country to try to locate them.
Numerous enquiries have been made overnight and police have taken calls from members of the public giving information which may help the investigation however officers are continuing to appeal for any sightings.
Officers are asking anyone with information about where Farndon is now to call Suffolk Police, or their nearest police station, as soon as possible - using 999 if necessary for sightings or 101 to pass on information.
Police are continuing to advise members of the public not to approach either of the men but to call officers straight away.
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
