If you were wondering why there was such a huge police presence in Bedford last Thursday (July 8), now you know.

Shortly before 2pm, officers were told a man had escaped from HMP Bedford.

He’d gone missing from the visitation area while visitors were coming in – however, officers were able to quickly locate him.

Rumour has it, he was found two hours later on the A1 near the M1 junction – on a bicycle.

Although the police won't confirm that detail, they were happy to tell us he’s been further charged and remanded for escape from lawful custody.
