    EARLIER, TROOPS HAD BEEN BROUGHT OUT, WITH POLICE AIDED BY DOGS, AND THE BROADMOOR SECURITY STAFF, TO TAKE PART IN THE FOURTEEN HOUR MANHUNT.

    AFTER BEING CAPTURED BY TWO POLICEMEN THE MEN WERE TAKEN TO THE LOCAL POLICE STATION AT WEYBRIDGE. SHORTLY AFTERWARDS THEY WERE RETURNED TO BROADMOOR.

    THE TWO MEN HAD SPENT THE NIGHT IN THE LOFT OF A DISUSED GARAGE ON THE ESTATE OF LORD LISBURNE. THE LOFT IS BEING TURNED INTO A PLAYROOM FOR THE FIVE YEARS OLD SON OF ONE OF THE SERVANTS. THE STAFF OF THE INSTITUTION HAVE SENT A DEPUTATION TO THE MINISTER OF HEALTH TO PROTEST WHAT THEY CALL THE INADEQUATE WARNING SYSTEM AND SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS AT BROADMOOR.
