A wanted Burnley sex offender has been caught in Liverpool.

Dilshad Miah (33) was arrested last night almost a year after failing to notify the authorities of a change of address.

Police had originally issued a wanted appeal for him in February 2014 but re-issued another one last week.

He was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in November 2013 and was given a 19-day suspended sentence and placed on the sex offenders’ register until December 2020.
