Three Australian men who escaped from prison ended up back in jail after flagging down an unmarked police car to hitch a ride.
The three men, aged 19, 20 and 27, escaped from the Warakirri Correctional Facility in New South Wales on Wednesday night.
Police began searching for them after prison staff realised the men were missing and raised the alarm.
The men were over 200km (120 miles) from the jail when recaptured.
They were taken to a nearby police station and charged with escape and attempt to escape lawful custody.
They have been refused bail and are due to appear in court on Friday.
