Jonathan Knight is thought to be in Halifax

Jonathan Knight was last seen by family members on Daggers Hall Lane around 6pm on Sunday 15 June, but they have not heard from him since.

It is believed that Jonathan may be in the Halifax area of West Yorkshire and police are appealing for anybody who knows where he is to come forward.

Sergeant Richard Frith said: “The longer Jonathan fails to make contact with his family the more concerned we are becoming.

“If anybody has had any contact with Jonathan recently or knows of his current whereabouts then please contact us.”


Skeggy accused of "dirty tricks" campaign

Skegness has been accused of staging a dirty tricks campaign against rival seaside resorts by publishing adverts showing Brighton and Blackpool riddled with graffiti. East Lindsay Council came up with the ads to promote an arts festival in Skegness later this month.

These pictures were meant to appear in local papers in Blackpool and Brighton today, but they refused to run them.
