Police are hunting for a man wanted on suspicion of attempted burglary in Heywood.

The incident happened on King Street on November 21 last year.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said the man who they have released a picture of was with another man walking along King Street from the Hind Hill Street direction and he then tried to enter a property via the front door.

The other man went to the back of the property but they both left after a few minutes along Mount Street.

Officers have asked witnesses to come forward.
