A man wanted for running away from Ford Prison has been arrested.

Paul Flint, who was being hunted by police, was arrested on Friday, September 6, in Horsham.

Officers arrested Flint at 4.35pm in the Wellington Road area of the town after they received a call from a member of the public who had spotted him.

“Officers were alerted to the man’s whereabouts by a member of public who had seen recent publicity appealing for help in tracing him,” said a Sussex Police spokesperson. “We would like to thank the public and media for their help in this appeal.”
