A GULF War veteran facing firearms charges has escaped from army custody for the third time in three months.

Military and civil police are hunting Lance Corporal James Piotrowski, 21, who escaped from his London barracks last Wednesday.

It is thought Piotrowski, who served for three months in Iraq with the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, may return to his home city of Birmingham.
