Detective Constable Dave Hanna of the Sex Offenders Management Unit said: “Aslam is in breach of his notification requirements which he knows he should adhere to.

“I would urge anyone who has seen him or knows where he is to contact us as soon as possible.

Aslam is described as Asian, 5’10”, of medium build with short dark hair and may have facial hair.

He is known to have links to Preston and Luton.
