A man from Scarborough is wanted to be taken back to prison for breaching the conditions of his release licence.

19-year-old Joshua Stephen Scott was jailed in May 2011 for two years and four months for assault.

Inspector Tony Quinn, of Scarborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:

"It is important that people who are released from prison on licence comply with the conditions imposed on them so that everyone can have the confidence that justice has been done.

I urge anyone who can help to trace Joshua Scott to contact the police straight away."
