Police are hunting the brutal killer of a mother-of-three after he escaped from a low-security jail with another inmate.

Police said Darren Jackson, who murdered, sexually assaulted and robbed 29-year-old Gillian Ellis as she walked home from a party in December 1984, was dangerous and violent and warned the public not to approach him. He was serving a life sentence. Jackson, 32, formerly of Burnley, Lancashire, and 22-year-old Neil Skinner - who was serving a three-year term for drugs offences - escaped from Ranby Prison, Nottinghamshire on Tuesday evening.
