Police hunting a sex offender who could be in Southampton have arrested a man.

Officers appealed for information concerning the whereabouts of the man on Saturday evening.

The man was wanted for breaching his licence conditions after his release from prison.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Police said: "We have been carrying out a number of enquiries to locate him and are now asking the public for help in finding him.

"It is known he caught a train from Havant at around 2.30pm on Thursday, September 30 after buying a ticket to Southampton."

People were asked to contact 999 should they see him and not approach him.

A man was arrested following the appeal and is in custody, police said.
