Five residents at Oberstown climbed the perimeter fence and escaped yesterday evening, but their taste of freedom was short-lived as search teams located them a short time later

The wayward group was taken back to Oberstown at around 10pm.

Staff at the facility have long been raising concerns about its suitability for both workers and residents.
