Absconders arrested for burglary
Two men have been arrested on suspicion of carrying out nine burglaries after leaving an open prison.

The pair, aged 32 and 35, were held after a series of raids carried out in Grendon Underwood, Buckinghamshire, between 28 July and 24 August.

It is believed the men, who were not named, had absconded from nearby Grendon and Springhill Open Prison.

They were arrested on suspicion of being unlawfully at large and burglary, a Thames Valley Police spokesman said.
