Walmsley, who had previously had a shaved head, was almost unrecognisable, having grown a beard and letting his hair grow long.

Appearing at Liverpool Magistrates' Court via video-link today, the killer had shoulder-length brown hair and a full beard.

Walmsley was serving life for murder, but escaped from prison after a visit to Aintree University Hospital. He soon appeared on a Europol most wanted list following fears he'd fled abroad.
