Serving soldier being held at IOM Prison 

29-year-old admits being AWOL 

A serving soldier from the British Army is being held at the Isle of Man Prison after going AWOL.

Jordan Ashley Brayford, of Bentilee in Stoke on Trent, appeared at Douglas Courthouse today (31 January).

Brayford, who serves with the 25 Training Regiment Royal Logistics Corps, admitted being absent without permission.

The 29-year-old was arrested by police at the Ramsey Park Hotel, in Ramsey, yesterday.

The court heard he’s been missing from His Majesty’s Armed Forces since 2 January.

Officials from the Royal Military Police will travel to the Island this week to take Brayford into their custody and back to the Normandy Barracks in East Yorkshire.
