A burglar who was recalled to prison earlier this month has been arrested in Torquay.

Police asked for the public’s help to trace Stephen Queen after he skipped meetings with the Probation Service in Scarborough.

The 44-year-old, of no fixed abode, had been released early from prison on 8 July.

He was originally sentenced to three years for burglaries at hotels in Scarborough and Whitby.

North Yorkshire Police said he was arrested on Tuesday and would be returned to prison.
