PRISON authorities will this week consider what action to take against a recaptured murderer.
Fugitive David Mitchell – serving life for murder – was recaptured in his home town of Huddersfield just three days after absconding from an open prison.
Mitchell, 44, left Kirkham Prison in Lancashire on Tuesday morning to go to a work placement but failed to turn up, Lancashire Police said.
Mitchell, who is from Almondbury, was serving a life sentence for the murder of his estranged partner in 1991.
He had been at HMP Kirkham since March.
