Brit convicts pedal to freedom during cycling test

By Abdul Nisar

Melbourne, Sept 17 (ANI): Two teenage convicts in Britain are said to have escaped from prison on cycles after they were let out to take a cycling test.

Connor Dewhurst, 14, and Sam Thomas, 13, were allowed to sit for the cycling proficiency test, which is an exam British children must take to prove they can safely ride bicycles on the road.

But the pair used the opportunity to flee from the juvenile detention centre in Manchester in northwestern England, News.com.au reported.

Cops think they pedalled 11 km to one of the city's major train stations before hopping on a tram to complete their escape bid.

Greater Manchester Police said Dewhurst had been convicted of attacking a police officer while Thomas was locked up for robbery.

They are still on the run. (ANI)
