Extensive searches were carried out with police dogs, helicopter and drone units.

The search for Kisiel continues and we are exploring a number of leads, particularly looking at transport routes out of the City and liaison with our surrounding forces.

A key line of enquiry is the fact that this may well have been a pre-planned escape and Kisiel may have had assistance.

Stunning picture of the moon at Stonehenge

While the summer solstice may be all about the sun, the moon has been making its presence felt this year.

This stunning photo was taken at Stonehenge last night by Tim Daw of All Cannings near Devizes. It shows the nearly full moon viewed through two of the stones. The pink colour is caused by the refraction of the light through the earth's atmosphere.

The full moon should be even more spectacular tonight, the night of the Solstice, provided there's no cloud about.
