Police are continuing to hunt for the suspected terrorist who escaped from Wandsworth prison on Wednesday morning.

Overnight there’s been a search operation in Richmond Park, where Daniel Khalife has connections. It’s believed his mother lived near the park.

NPAS released this statement earlier.

“To dispel some rumours that have been circulating. We were deployed to Richmond Park last night searching for escaped prisoner Daniel Khalife. Due to the size and complexity of the park this took a protracted period of time. Apologies for the noise.”

But the post on Twitter was met by a wave of support from people who said no apology was needed for carrying out vital work.

Officers also answered a query relating to infrared cameras, saying they could “very easily” tell the different between a human and a deer.
