A man who tried to escape justice by failing to turn up to court has been found by police.

Kevin Keady failed to appear at Watford Magistrates Court on Tuesday, March 11 for a common assault alleged to have taken place in Watford on December 10.

Police launched a public appeal to track down the 55 year old, of Martian Avenue, who was eventually arrested in Hemel Hempstead on Friday – a month after his original hearing was scheduled.

He appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on Saturday and will now face St Albans Crown Court on May 15.

Officers have thanked the public for their help.
