Man charged with escaping custody

A man has been charged with escaping lawful custody after two people were sprung from a prison van.

Stevie McMullen, 21, will appear before Manchester Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, Greater Manchester Police said.

Two men, aged 27 and 25, who were arrested near Lancaster University on suspicion of assisting an offender remained in police custody for questioning.

A £10,000 reward remains on offer for information leading to the arrest of Ryan McDonald, who was freed by three masked men in Salford when he was on his way to court on Tuesday.
