A man who absconded from Magilligan Prison more than three years ago has been extradited from the Republic of Ireland back to Northern Ireland.

The 32-year-old had been unlawfully at large since 30 July 2015, having failed to return from temporary release.

He was arrested in the Republic on 3 April 2018 after the PSNI sought a European Arrest Warrant.

He is due to appear before Newry Magistrates’ Court later on Monday.
