Police have launched a manhunt for a man who is wanted and has links to the Kirkby-in-Ashfield area. Nottinghamshire Police is urgently searching for Stephen Gregory, 54, who is wanted for a recall to prison.

Previous offenders can be taken straight back to prison if they have been released on licence or parole and break the rules of their probation. This is known as a "recall".

Members of the public have been warned not to approach Gregory if they spot him, with officers instead asking people to call 999 immediately. Sergeant Rebecca Jepson said: “We are working hard to track down this man as soon as possible and are appealing for the public to help us.
