A £5,000 reward is being offered for information about a wanted man who poses a 'risk'.

Samuel Hamilton, who has links to Southampton and Portsmouth, breached his licence conditions and is wanted on recall to prison.

The 24-year-old was last seen in the Portsea area of Portsmouth on Sunday, January 7.

It is believed he also has links to Bristol.

Members of the public are urged not to approach him but to contact Crimestoppers, 100 per cent anonymously, if they have any information.
