Escapee's extra two years in jail


A convicted killer who escaped from Swansea Crown Court just after being sentenced to five years in prison for possessing an illegal gun, has been jailed for an extra two years.

James Stevenson used a shoelace to pull open the catch of his cell door, before embarking on what was described as a "daring and dangerous" escape.

He handed himself in after more than two weeks on the run. Nicola Smith reports.
