by armed police

A prisoner who stalked an MP's personal assistant was recaptured yesterday by armed police after escaping from a mental hospital.

Dale Morris, 29, who is ordered to be detained indefinitely under the Mental Health Act, became obsessed with Louise Hobkinson - a former researcher for the Conservative MP Bill Cash. Morris disappeared from Menzies House at Leek, Staffordshire, on Tuesday and was reported to be armed with a shotgun. Police arrested him in Hanford, Staffordshire. No firearm was found.
