Police are hunting for a criminal with a distinctive "clown" tattoo after he breached his licence.

South Yorkshire Police have appealed for help to trace 23-year-old Leon Hughes, from Conisbrough.

Hughes, who was jailed in November for harassment and breaching restraining orders, has a clown tattoo on his left eye and other tattoos on his neck.

Police have said Hughes, who is wanted for recall to prison, should not be approached.

He was released from prison on licence earlier this year.

A force spokesperson said: "Hughes has broken several conditions and is now wanted by police."

Hughes, who was last seen on Thursday, is described as white, 5ft 11in (1.8m) tall and of slim build, with short, brown hair. He has family in Conisbrough and Mexborough.

Anyone who spots him is asked to contact South Yorkshire Police.
