Two men who escaped from Waikato's Waikeria Prison have spent the night back behind bars, after being arrested in Dargaville.

A tip-off led police to the whereabouts of 24-year-old Jesse Lee Ibell, and 23-year-old Wayne Holmes yesterday afternoon.

They'll appear in Whangarei District Court tomorrow.
