Prison escapee Stewart Caves

A BARNSLEY man has escaped from the Lancashire prison where he was doing time for aggravated burglary.

Stewart Caves, 32, was jailed for seven years in 2012 and was serving his sentence at HMP Kirkham.

He escaped at around 7.20pm on Wednesday June 11 and police believe he may be attempting to make his way back to the Barnsley area, possibly via West Yorkshire where it is thought he has associates.

Police are appealing for sightings of Caves, but warned the public not to approach him.

Anyone who sees him should contact 101, or 999 in an emergency, quoting incident number 1360 of June 11 2014.
