A 33-year-old dangerous driver has absconded from an open prison in Suffolk.

Edward Stokes was reported missing from Hollesley Bay today after he was absent from a roll call.

He is serving a 20 month sentence for dangerous driving.

Stokes is described as white, with ginger hair and is of a slight build.

He was last seen wearing grey Converse tracksuit bottoms, grey/black Airmax trainers and a blue body warmer with brown shoulders. He also has a one inch scar on his right thumb.

Stokes has links to the Essex area and Suffolk Constabulary is advising members of the public not to approach him.
