A convicted rapist from West Yorkshire who absconded from prison has been found.

Adam Mark escaped from HMP Leyhill, in South Gloucestershire, on Tuesday.

Police believed he may have tried to return to his home county.

But he was spotted in Hambrook in Bristol by a member of the public yesterday (Thursday).

Police said the 37-year-old had been arrested and would be handed over to the prison authorities.

Mark was serving a life sentence for abducting and raping a woman, as well as attempting to abduct and rape two other women in Leeds in the 1990s.
