Police are appealing for the public's help after two men escaped from prison.

Mark Price, 39, and Reece Baker, 23, both fled HMP Kirkham at around 9.40pm on Monday.

He is approximately 5'10" tall, with a slim build, dark hair and brown eyes. He may now be clean shaven.

Price has a distinctive tattoo of a jack in the box on his right arm, and has links to the West Midlands and West Mercia areas.

Baker was jailed for seven years and seven months at Bristol Crown Court in December 2017 for robbery.

He is roughly 6" tall, with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.

Baker has a West Country accent and tattoos on his right arm including a rose and angel. He has known links to Avon and Somerset.

Anyone who has spotted either men is urged to come forward and call 101 or email Westintelunit@lancashire.pnn.police.uk.
