Police have confirmed a man who fled a sentencing hearing at Norwich Crown Court this morning has returned to the court house.

A man due to appear for sentencing at Norwich Crown court this morning is now wanted by police, having left the court house.

Grant Murray of Sutton Road, King’s Lynn, was due to appear before Judge Bates on April 5 to be charged with offences including forgery, theft, and fraud.

Defending, Mark Rooshove explained to the court: “I went to make Mr Murray aware of some developments, and take instruction from him.

“He then said he had to take some calls. Put frankly; I don’t know where he is.”

Judge Bate advised prosecutor Mr Farr that the police should be contacted to help find Murray, 34.

He said: “Please urge the officers to treat this as a priority, if we alert them he shouldn’t get too far.”
