The PSNI have arrested a man who absconded from custody in Co Fermanagh.

The PSNI said Duane Farry escaped while “being dealt with for a medical issue”.

The 34-year-old had originally been taken into custody on suspicion of numerous offences including criminal damage and assault on a police officer.

He was arrested in Coalisland yesterday.

The police thanked the public for their help in locating the convict.
