London - A rapist serving a life sentence for a ‘truly horrendous’ attack stole a prison bicycle and rode to freedom from an open jail.
Wayne Jones, 39, pedalled 25 miles before he was caught.
Jones had been transferred to the category D North Sea Camp prison, near Boston, Lincolnshire, days before he escaped. He had been at high-security HMP Wakefield, but was nearing the end of his term.
The prisoner was jailed in 2001 for the terrifying rape, when he held a screwdriver to a woman’s throat and threatened to stab her in the face.
