R v Montgomery 

Where a prisoner who was on temporary release from prison pursuant to r 9 of the Prison Rules 1999 failed to return to prison at the expiry of his release period, he could not be said to have escaped from custody and could not therefore be guilty of the common law offence of escape from custody.”
