Police have launched an appeal to find a man wanted on recall to prison. 

Ryan Atkinson, who has links to Bolton, Bury and Leigh, is wanted by Greater Manchester Police (GMP).

A picture of the 28-year-old released by the force shows him to be white, with brown hair and with multiple marks on his face. 

GMP urge anyone with any information to call them on 0161 856 9189 or 0161 856 3622.

Police regularly put out wanted appeals to help them find suspects or other people who are wanted on recall to prison, or in some cases for missing court appearances.

But the force urges anyone who sees a wanted person not to approach them and instead to contact police as soon as it is safe to do so.
