One of Lancashire's most wanted men has been captured and sent back to prison.

Adam Yusif Bhamji from Bamber Bridge, who was wanted on recall to prison, has been arrested in West Mercia.

The 38-year-old was located travelling in a vehicle on the M5 on Saturday afternoon.

Officers from West Mercia Police stopped the vehicle and arrested Bhamji before he was brought back to Lancashire on Monday.

Bhamji, who also uses the last name Birch, has been sent back to prison where he will serve the remainder of his 10 year sentence for aggravated burglary.

He has also been bailed in relation to allegations of assault and will be spoken to at a later date in connection with these offences.

A spokesperson for the police said: "Bhamji was located following our media appeals as part of Operation Hunter, which targets some of the county’s most wanted offenders.

"We have made more than 50 arrests in South division since the campaign started earlier this month and we now need your help to find others trying to evade capture.

"One down, four to go, here are the most wanted faces in South Lancashire – do you know where they are?"
