The full route taken by the catering van which escaped prisoner Daniel Khalife was underneath has been revealed. 

On Wednesday morning (September 6) the fugitive ex-soldier escaped from HMP Wandsworth by tying himself to the underside of a food truck. 

One hour and five minutes passed between the moment the truck left the prison and the moment it was stopped by police. 

Officers found the strapping underneath the vehicle but no sign of 21-year-old terror suspect Khalife. 

The Met has now revealed the full route the catering truck took after it left HMP Wandsworth, in the hope that locals may come forward with useful information. 

Here’s the full route: 

  • 7.32 am – The van leaves HMP Wandsworth and turns right onto Heathfield Road. 
  • Van then turns onto Magdalen Road then onto Trinity Road, the A214. 
  • At the Wandsworth Road roundabout it then took the first exit onto the A127. 
  • It then immediately turned left onto Old York Road and went past Wandsworth Town Station. 
  • The van then turned onto Fairfield Street and onto Wandsworth High Street. 
  • It then carried on straight ahead onto West Hill then onto Upper Richmond Road. 
  • At 8.37am then van was stopped on Upper Richmond Road at the junction with Carlton Drive, near East Putney station.

In a briefing on Thursday afternoon, Commander Dominic Murphy from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command said they continue to concentrate the bulk of their efforts in London. 

However, he added that they are open minded about where Khalife may be, and could not rule out that he had already left the country. 

He said: “Since yesterday, over 150 officers and staff have been working around the clock on apprehending Khalife.

"We have issued a nationwide alert that has resulted in increased security at our ports and borders, however currently there have not been any confirmed sightings.

“I recognise and am fully aware of the impact these measures are having on the public. We are working to ensure as minimal disruption as possible.

“It is crucial for the public to help us with this search and to call us immediately if they have any information on the whereabouts of Khalife.”

Khalife, who was discharged from the Army in May 2023, was awaiting trial after allegedly planting a fake bomb at an RAF base and gathering information that might be useful to terrorists or enemies of the UK. 

He has denied the three charges against him. 

Commander Dominic Murphy, said there was “no reason to believe Khalife poses a threat to the wider public” but urged people not to approach him and to call 999 if they spot him
