Police are hunting for a York man who's wanted on prison recall.

29 year old, Richard James Sampson, was convicted of GBH with intent back in 2004 and sentenced to 9 years in jail.

He was released last November but now his licence has been revoked as he's breached curfew conditions.

Detectives say they're focusing their enquiries in York and Hull where Sampson has friends.

Sampson is described as white, 6ft tall, short brown hair, with a long face, large nose and protruding ears. He usually wears a tracksuit and baseball cap.

While it is not believed Sampson poses a particular concern or danger to the public, people are advised not approach him regarding this matter.

Anyone with information that could help locate Sampson is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police immediately on 0845 60 60 24 7, quoting the reference number 12100028842.
