Prison recall perp hands himself in for change of scenery in lockdown

A man subject to a prison recall handed himself into Sussex Police rather than spend any more time in lockdown with the people he lives with.

He was wanted on recall to prison and handed himself into Burgess Hill Police Station yesterday (Wednesday 18 February) at around 5pm in a bid for some “peace and quiet”.

Inspector Darren Taylor, from Sussex Police, posted about the exchange on Twitter.

He said: “Peace and quiet! Wanted male handed himself in to the team yesterday afternoon after informing us he would rather go back to prison then have to spend more time with the people he was living with!

“One in custody and heading back to prison to serve some further time on his own.”

The force did not provide any further details.
