An man on-the-run from an English open prison has been found in Northern Ireland.

George John McHugh absconded from HMP Sudbury on Tuesday, July 4.

Derbyshire Constabulary confirmed the 49-year-old had been re-captured in Northern Ireland on Monday.

"He will be brought back to Derbyshire to be dealt with," said a statement from the force.

McHugh was sentenced at Chester Crown Court on March 31 to two-and-a-half-years for fraud and failing to surrender.
