Two prisoners have escaped from Pentonville prison in north London, the Ministry of Justice has confirmed. They were discovered missing on Monday morning when jail staff found mannequins in their beds. It is believed the pair used diamond-tipped cutting equipment to break through cell bars before scaling the perimeter wall. A manhunt is now underway for James Whitlock, aged 31, and 28-year-old Matthew Baker. Police have warned the public not to approach the two convicts as they could become violent, but to call 999 if they see either of them.
