He was sentenced in December 2015 for ten years for aggravated burglary and assault, and released on April 27 on licence.

Bhamji is now wanted on recall to prison after it is suspected he has breached the terms of his release.

Anyone who sees Bhamji should not approach him but contact police immediately.

PC Paul Moseley, of Preston Police, said: "He has not listened to pleas from his probation worker to hand himself in so I am appealing directly to Bhamji to do the right thing and get in touch.

"I would also urge anyone who sees him or has any information about his whereabouts to please contact police and let us know.”

Those who have had immediate sightings of Bhamji are asked to call 999.

Anyone with information can contact 101 or email [email protected] quoting log number 0021 of May 23rd.
