A MAN who was on the run from police for several weeks has been charged with wounding.

Joel Ludlam, who has featured among the Lancashire Telegraph’s most wanted men for a number of weeks, was arrested on Friday.

He has now been charged with a count of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and two counts of criminal damage.

He has now been recalled to prison and will appear in court on Monday morning.

A police spokesman said: “Contrary to some comments on the other post (presumably from people nowhere near him when he was arrested) I can confirm that officers located him at an address in Burnley. He did not hand himself in as some are claiming.”
