Detectives in Swansea are searching for James Stevenson, who has breached his licence conditions after being released from prison.

The 35-year-old, whose convictions include manslaughter and firearms offences, hit the headlines in 2009 after using a shoelace to escape from Swansea Crown Court moments before he was due to be sentenced.

And four years previously, he sparked a manhunt after fleeing a prison in Dorset - where he was being held for manslaughter.

Stevenson, 35, who is from the Townhill area of the city and has recently lived in Landore, is wanted for recall to prison after breaching the terms of his release.
