Paul Stone has gone missing from HMP Standford Hill on the Isle of Sheppey

A prisoner on the run from an Isle of Sheppey prison has been found this afternoon.

Paul Stone, from Medway, fled HMP Standford Hill, in Eastchurch, on Monday.

Kent Police said he was discovered today and has now been taken back into custody.

The 36-year-old (pictured left) was the third inmate to escape from the prison in just days.

Anthony Hogan, 50, from south London, and Nicky Gale, 29, from Dartford, disappeared from the same prison on January 2.

Police are not ruling out the fact the pair may have fled together.

HMP Standford Hill is a category D open prison where some inmates are approaching the end of their sentence.
