Two asylum seekers who escaped from the Northern Immigration Detention Centre near Darwin this morning have been caught by police.
Officers say the 46-year-old and 19-year-old Vietnamese men climbed the detention centre fence and escaped just after 2am today.
One of the men was found on McMillans Road, not far away.
The other was found shortly afterwards this morning.
The Federal Immigration Minister's office says the Immigration Department and Serco, the detention centre manager, will investigate how the escape happened.
