Police have issued an appeal to locate a man who is wanted in connection with a number of recent offences.

Officers want to speak to 30-year-old Nicholas Hughes in connection with alleged offences including assault, theft of a bank card and withdrawal of cash in February.

A warrant for his arrest has also been issued at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court for breach of a court order.

Hughes is described as being 5ft 10ins, of a slim build, with short dark brown hair and a brown beard and moustache.

He also has a tattoo of a woman's name and a star on his neck and 'Mum' tattooed on his right hand.

After actively pursuing a number of lines of enquiry to find Hughes, officers have been unable to locate him and are now asking for information from the public. 

It is believed he has links to areas of the Forest of Dean including Lydney, Coleford and Cinderford, and he also has links to Gloucester.

Anyone who sees Hughes, or has any information on his whereabouts, is asked to call police on 101 and quote incident 364 of 3 February. Dial 999 if he is present at the time of calling.
