A missing sex offender who breached the conditions of his release from prison has been found after a police search.

Hanif Alam was jailed for 21 months and ordered to sign the sex offenders' register after being convicted of sexual assault in November 2008.

A search was launched on Monday after the 31-year-old failed to attend a probation appointment.

Lancashire Police have now confirmed Mr Alam has been found in Burnley, Lancashire.
