Merseyside Police are appealing for information from the public to help locate a local man who is wanted on prison recall.

Sam Gates, from Birkenhead, was originally sentenced to three years and one month in December 2017 for harassment, affray and possession of a bladed article in a public place, but he has breached the conditions of his licence.

Gates is described as white, 5ft 11” tall, of slim build, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who has seen him or knows where he is should contact @MerPolCC, 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
