AN ESCAPED prisoner has been caught after he absconded from HMP Springhill.

Police were hunting for James Frost, 28, who was last seen on March 5 at HMP Springhill near Aylesbury.

It was believed that he had links to Bracknell, though police have not confirmed where he was found.

It is believed that Frost was picked up from outside the prison and may have been travelling in a black Volkswagen.

Frost is serving a prison sentence for burglary and drug offences.
