Paul Creedy absconded from prison on Wednesday.

The force said Creedy has links to Greater Manchester, and is described as being 5'6". having blue eyes, a thin build, black hair, and a scar on his forehead.

He was originally jailed after the death of a man who was left to drown after Creedy and his fellow gang members pushed him into a canal during a crime spree.

Police told the public not to approach him, and to call 101 if they have any information, quoting log reference 1338 of August 14.
