One of St Mary Cray's criminal Mitchell brothers has been arrested once again after police spotted him this week.

Convicted thief John Mitchell, 34, was arrested on Tuesday (January 9) after he was recalled to prison.

Cray Valley East police joked on Twitter that they "weren't fooled by the new haircut" and Mitchell was a "regular customer".

A spokesman told News Shopper: "He was wanted on a recall to prison to serve the remainder of a sentence. He breached conditions of his licence, but we are unsure as to which ones exactly."

Mitchell was also arrested on October 23, 2017 after again breaching the terms of his release.

His brother Perry also has convictions for burglary and theft.
