Hunt goes on for missing prisoner
George Robert Skelton
Skelton was serving a six-year sentence
A prisoner is still on the run nearly a month after he escaped.

George Robert Skelton, 29, from North Shields, escaped from Haverigg Prison on 27 August, after he is thought to have climbed a fence.

He was serving a six-year sentence for drug offences at the Category C prison, in south-west Cumbria.

He drove to motorway services at Southwaite, near Penrith, where a police officer was assaulted in what is believed to be a related incident.

Skelton is described as 5ft 9ins, 11 stone, with brown hair and blue eyes, an oval face and fair complexion.
