A WANTED man released on early licence has been sent back to prison.

Ryan Ainsworth, 24, from Blackburn, had been on the run after being let out early from a three-year sentence for wounding.

On July 7, he was arrested at an address in Hollin Bridge Street, Blackburn.

Ainsworth, who has the letters RW tattooed on his neck, was believed to have breached the terms of his early release and has now been returned to prison.
