One of two men who escaped from London's Pentonville Prison after using diamond-tipped cutting equipment to break through their cell bars and leaving mannequins in their beds to fool guards on Monday (7 November), has been arrested.

Mathew Baker, 28, was found hiding at an address in Ilford, north-east London, on Wednesday (9 November) night, the Met Police revealed. He was being held at the HMP Pentonville in Islington while awaiting sentencing for attempted murder.

Baker was found guilty of attempted murder two weeks ago for stabbing a man in Dagenham. He was due to be sentenced on 11 November.

Metropolitan Police have also arrested a 21-year-old woman and a 33-year old man, BBC reports.

Police have renewed its appeal for information on James Whitlock, 31, who still remains at large.

Whitlock was on remand after being charged with conspiracy to burgle after allegedly stealing from 19 ATMs in south-east England. He has the word 'Tracy' tattooed on his torso.
