The PSNI are hunting for an escaped prisoner who went missing while out on bail at the weekend.

33-year-old Jonathan Turley was granted bail last Saturday, 9 May, but has failed to return to jail.

The police are seeking information about his whereabouts but have warned members of the public not to approach him, as they say he has an extensive history of violence and may pose a risk to them.

The PSNI say Turley travelled to Belfast last Saturday and was last seen in the Newcastle area of Co Down the following day.
