Patricia Marsh, 23, a Liverpool law clerk, was remanded in custody by Manchester magistrates accused of helping two prisoners escape from the court where they were on trial over the Strangeways jail riot.

Alan Lord, 31, and Anthony Bush, 27, who with three other defendants escaped from Manchester Crown Court last Wednesday, are still at large. But Barry Morton, 24, was recaptured by police in Liverpool. Two other people were arrested for harbouring him. Two other escaped prisoners, Mark Azzopardi, 23, and John Murray, 24, are still at large. The jury in the riot trial were sent to a hotel for a third night.
