EXCLUSIVE Gibraltar Inquirer picture of the missing man.
  Gibraltar, 6th October 2006
Police were last night searching for a Ukrainian illegal immigrant who last night jumped the 30ft perimeter wall of Moorish Castle Prison and escaped to the 'jungle area'.

it is believed that he became so angry after reading the 'Gibraltar Chronicle' describing him as a 'Russian' that he rocketed over the fence/frontier thus solving the problem of illegal immigrants in Gibraltar in one giant leap for mankind.

Contributing factors may have been a desire to escape the local election campaign, the inability to get a postal vote for Yulia Tymoshenko and to rejoin his national Olympic team.

After discovering that Gibraltar was unable to compete due to Spanish objections he decided to leave the Medieval Castle training facility. A spokesman for Gibraltar Amateur Athletics said 'The man is a high flyer and will go far'.
