A maximum security prisoner has staged an audacious escape in the Australian state of New South Wales by tying bed sheets together to climb over a wall.
Stephen Jamieson, 28, is reported to have attached a pillow round his waist to avoid being injured by razor wire.
He was serving a 12-year sentence for armed robbery.
He is reported to have escaped after cutting through a gate at the back of a small secure exercise yard attached to his cell.
Commissioner Severin said Jamieson had a history of trying to escape and was put into solitary confinement after a man-made hole was discovered inside a workshop at the prison.
