Two arrests over Prescoed prisoner escape

South Wales Argus: ON THE RUN: Brian Grady ON THE RUN: Brian Grady

TWO people have been arrested on suspicion of assisting a prisoner to escape from Prescoed prison in Usk.

A 37-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman, both from the Bristol area are being held as the search goes on for killer and robber, Brian Grady who absconded from Prescoed prison on Monday.

Brady was sentenced in July 2003 to serve at least 11 years at Bristol Crown Court after being convicted of murder and robbery.

He is described as white, 5ft 11ins, of medium build, with short light brown hair and blue eyes. He has a scar under his left eye and speaks with a Bristol accent.

He is not a registered sex offender.

Monmouth MP David Davies says he has raised the matter of GRady's escape in person with the home secretary, and is contacting Gwent Police to seek assurances they will treat his recapture as a priority.

This really beggars belief what idiots in charge of the judicial system decided that a convicted killer should
"LOL" be held in an open prison like Prescoed.It is common knowledge amongst the local people that internees of that place can walk out at any time it suits them. As for this guy being released on licence that again is one big laugh he should have served his full time with no remission or favours.
