A "dangerous" former gang member has now been on the run for a month.

There have been no sightings of 32 year old Duane Anthony Edwards who is wanted after breaching conditions of his licence.

He has been at large since before Christmas. His last known address was Tindall Street, Reddish, Stockport. He also has links to Gorton.

Edwards was originally jailed in 2007 for being part of a robbery plot by Manchester’s notorious Gooch Gang. He is wanted on recall to prison.

Greater Manchester Police say Edwards knows he is wanted and is actively evading arrest.

Anyone with information about Edwards’ whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
