Officers are trying to trace a wanted man from Hyde.

28-year-old Shane Astal, also known as Shane Thorogood, is wanted on recall to prison after failing to appear at court for a hearing in connection with a section 18 assault.

He was originally jailed for a separate section 18 assault but was released on license.

Officers working to trace him believe he is actively evading arrest and encourage anyone with information relating to him or anyone who sees him to make contact.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
