He is back in custody.

A man who absconded from North Sea Camp near Boston by jumping over a prison wall has been arrested after handing himself in to police.

Members of the public were told not to approach Peter McGlade, who escaped at around 6.10pm on Sunday, January 7.

Officers, a police drone, dog support unit and air support searched for McGlade, who was serving time for burglary.
