CONVICTED robber, Lee Thorpe, is now back behind bars two weeks after he escaped from his prison cell at Hollesley Bay.
The jobless father-of-two fled to London after he walked out of the gates of the prison on October 5.
He was arrested on October 20 in East London after burgling two shops and has now been jailed for six months after pleading guilty to one charge of escaping custody.
When jailing him at the Old Bailey, Judge Martin Stephens, said: "People permitted to go to open conditions are there so their progress can be monitored with a view to being released back in to the community.
