Police are trying to trace a wanted man from Accrington who may be in the Burnley area.

Steven Hargreaves (34) is wanted for a recall to prison after absconding from an address in Accrington where he was living as part of his licence conditions.

He is believed to be back in the Burnley area and is known to have links to the Griffin estate.

He was released earlier this month on licence after being convicted of robbery and burglary related offences.

He is described as white, around 5ft 11in. tall with short cropped hair.

Sgt Martin Storey from Lancashire Constabulary’s Offender Management Unit said: “We are keen to locate Hargreaves as soon as possible and I would urge anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to get in touch with us on 101, and not to approach him.

“Similarly if he sees this appeal himself I would urge him to make contact with police and attend the nearest police station.”

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at
