POLICE are hunting for a man who is wanted for escaping from prison.

Daniel Harold Milburn ran away from HMP Kirkham yesterday (Wednesday) and officers are circulating his picture in an attempt to find him.

The 35-year-old was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison at Leicester Crown Court in November 2018 for three counts of arson which were reckless or intended to endanger life.

He is described as being 5ft 9in tall, of medium to heavy build.

He has brown eyes, cropped/shaven black hair and speaks with a Welsh accent. He also has tattoos including ‘SUE’ on his left finger and a Batman symbol on his back.

Milburn has links to South Wales, Lancashire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Leicester.

Anyone who has seen Milburn or knows where he might be is urged to call 101 quoting log number 1402 of January 22.
