A killer who escaped from prison has been found in Kirkcaldy, it has been revealed.

Alexander Woodside absconded from Barlinnie Prison in Glasgow while on a work placement on Friday.

He was jailed for life in 1998 for the murder of 16-year old John Hampson in a Glasgow street.

Police Scotland confirmed this afternoon he had been traced to the Kirkcaldy area in the early hours of Sunday, and returned to prison.
