THE Met police has just released a statement saying they've received information about a possible sighting of Daniel Khalife, who escaped from Wandsworth prison on Wednesday.

The escape led to travel chaos at airports across the UK, including Glasgow Airport. 

Counter-terror commander Dominic Murphy said a man resembling Khalife had been seen walking towards Wandsworth town centre shortly after the absconder had fled prison strapped to the bottom of a BidFood delivery lorry.

He added the force was now offering a £20,000 reward for information on Khalife’s whereabouts.

The sighting is one of several "key lines" of enquiry the police are following, it says.

Commander Dominic Murphy said: “This remains a fast-paced and dynamic investigation, but I want the public to know that a large number of officers are working extremely hard to locate Khalife.

“We have now received more than 100 calls from the public, and we thank everyone who has contacted us with information.

“The sighting near Wandsworth Roundabout could be very significant, and this is one of many useful lines of inquiry that officers are perusing.

“We continue to urge the public to contact us straight away if they think they have seen Khalife or have information on his whereabouts."

Murphy also called on Daniel Khalife to hand himself in to police, warning officers were “closing in” on the terror suspect after he escaped from Wandsworth prison on Wednesday.

Murphy said: “My message to him is to hand yourself in, either call us or go to a local police station and hand yourself in.

“With the reward we are offering today and the amazing support we have had from the public and the media, we will be closing in on you, Daniel, you really need to come in and give yourself up.”
