Menzies, who is known to frequent Burngreave in Sheffield and also has links to Rotherham, has also been recalled to prison.

He was released on licence part way through a two year sentence imposed in June 2014 for two counts of dangerous driving, failing to surrender and driving without a licence and insurance.

Prisoners on licence have to adhere to a strict set of conditions or they can be recalled to jail.

Menzies is on licence until April 2018.

Detective Sergeant Richard Armstrong said Menzies 'is well aware that he is wanted by police' and that there is a 'dedicated team out looking for him'.

Members of the public are advised not to approach him but to call the police instead.
