POLICE have confirmed a dangerous robber who escaped from Thorn Cross prison more than two weeks ago is still on the run.

John Arnold, aged 30, was given a two-year indeterminate sentence in 2006 but escaped alongside another prisoner at the Appleton jail on May 20. 

Anthony Peloe, who was jailed for a firearms offence, was found the next day but the hunt for Arnold is still on-going. 

A Cheshire police spokesman did not comment further.
