A  prison spokeswoman made this known on Thursday.

The girlfriend, 18, had terminated their relationship by phone shortly before the young man scaled the 4-metre outer wall a week ago, the spokeswoman said.

He climbed over the barred window to his former girlfriend’s cell.

Discovered by prison staff, the man refused to come down and was removed by the fire services, suffering a minor injury in the process.
