Police in Greater Manchester have launched a campaign to find the most wanted criminals in the area.
A van with a screen to show those they would like to find will be driven around the city.
A murder investigation has been launched after a man was killed during an assault as his van was being stolen.
The victim was named by police as James Ray, 69, a father of two and grandfather of four from York.
It happened on the Plantation Industrial Estate in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, just after midday yesterday.
Emergency services were called to a report of a serious assault and found Mr Ray with serious head injuries.
He was taken to Hope Hospital where he died in the early hours of today - his 70th birthday.
Greater Manchester Police say the offenders left the scene in a car and also drove away in the victim's white transit van.
“We have made two arrests but the investigation is continuing and we are still seeking information.
"We believe there is at least one other person outstanding and I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the van and Fiesta being driven erratically to contact police.
"I would also appeal to anyone who knows who owns the Fiesta or who has been using it in recent days and weeks to call us.
A 23-year-old man and a 44-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody for questioning.
- Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
A man called Greater Manchester Police to complain that a prostitute had not given him enough time.
The angry customer rang officers to say he had paid for 30 minutes but she had only provided 10 minutes.
The unusual objection was made to police in north Manchester who posted this tweet.
It was the latest in a series of bizarre complaints to police across Greater Manchester.
In July, a woman rang 999 when staff at a gym wouldn’t let her in – despite the fact she didn’t have a valid pass.
And in June, a Salford pensioner alerted officers that his wife was "driving him round the bend".
