Staffordshire Escaped Prisoner Arrested
A violent criminal who escaped from prison in Staffordshire before reportedly fleeing to Spain has been arrested.
Haroon Ahmed has been on the run since fleeing from HMP Dovegate, near Marchington, Staffordshire, on Wednesday afternoon.
Claims emerged over the weekend that the 26-year-old had fled to Marbella on the Costa del Sol.
He reportedly said he escaped jail as he "wanted to test out the security,'' adding: "I thought, I'll give it a go - and walked out of the door. That's how easy it was. I just kept on walking.''
A statement from Staffordshire Police issued today said: "Haroon Ahmed, who is from the Derby area, was arrested this morning in the Nottingham area and has been taken into custody.''
A spokeswoman said his whereabouts while on the run will form part of the police investigation.
The force previously said they were investigating "all lines of inquiry'' and they could not confirm or deny whether he had travelled to Spain.
Ahmed, who was serving a sentence for robbery, told the Sunday Mirror that he was worried for his safety if he returns to the UK and claimed his family was being harassed because of his escape.
He had been missing since around 4.15pm on Wednesday, Staffordshire Police said.
Staffordshire Police thanked members of the public for their help sharing appeals to find Ahmed.
It added: "Our social media posts have reached just under 300,000 people in total.''
In the months before the attack on Westminster, Khalid Masood had been living in Birmingham. Here's what we know about him so far.
Two men from Birmingham remain in custody after a search for accomplices to the Westminster terror attack has seen 11 arrested this week.
A total of seven people have now been arrested after raids in Birmingham over the terror attack in Westminster.
