Norwich prisoner Arfath Ali still on the run a week after escape

An escaped prisoner is still evading police, a week after he overpowered a guard at Norwich Crown Court.

Arfath Ali, 28, was in court last Tuesday where he was due to appear on an assault charge.

But he escaped from the dock and ran out of the court.

A police spokeswoman said their enquiries into where Ali was were continuing.

He was wearing dark jeans and a blue jumper and has links to Norwich and London.
