He is now wanted on suspicion of breaching the terms of his licence following the assault.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Police said: "He has not listened to pleas from his probation worker to hand himself in, so we are appealing directly to Bhamji to do the right thing and contact us.

"We would also urge anyone who sees him, or has any information about his whereabouts, to please let us know."

Bhamji, who also uses the last name Birch, is described as around 5ft 8in tall, of medium build, with short dark hair.

He has multiple tribal tattoos on his arms, back and neck.

Police are urging anyone who sees Bhamji not to approach him but to contact police immediately on 999.
