There has been a rise in the number of inmates absconding from prisons in England and Wales, official figures show.
A total of 225 prisoners went on the run - an increase of 21 compared to the previous year - according to government data.
This included 137 from open prisons which have been subject of controversy after a spate of criminals walked out.
The most high-profile of those was Michael Wheatley - known as the 'Skullcracker' who sparked a nationwide manhunt after absconding from HMP Standford Hill on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.
