Lloyd Pattison, 29, has been hunted by South Yorkshire Police since July as he was believed to hold vital information about damage to a property in Wath-upon-Dearne.

Officers have also been on the look out Jason Russell, 30, from Kimberworth, following a separate incident on June 7 in which a man and woman were assaulted in Rotherham.

However, earlier today, police said that the pair are no longer being hunted.
