A man with links to Kingston who was given three life sentences for trying to kill a shopkeeper has gone on the run from prison.

Anthony Bolden was last seen at HMP Spring Hill in Buckinghamshire, a Category D open prison, on May 30 at around 9.30pm.

Whilst on licence from another prison term in 2005, he stabbed a shopkeeper 18 times and attacked a police officer with a shovel.

Thames Valley Police said the 55-year-old has tattoos on his arms, torso and left hand.

He is described as white, 6ft 1in (185cm) tall, of slim build with short grey hair.

In addition to Kingston, he is believed to have links to Hertfordshire, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and west Kensington.

Police have warned the public not to approach Bolden but to call police on 101 if they see him or have any information of his whereabouts.
