Police this week released details of three criminals - including one from Great Yarmouth - on the run in Norfolk after an outcry over the number of offenders wanted nationwide.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed a total of almost 1,000 criminals were wanted on recall to prison following a nationwide audit.

These figures included five prisoners at large in Norfolk - one of the lowest figures in the country. However, these figures are out-of-date and there are now three criminals currently on the wanted list.

Among them is Jay Jenkins, 35, from Yarmouth who has been wanted since July 3 on recall to prison having breached the terms of his licence.

He was convicted for theft in April 2008. Police recommend he is not approached and anyone with any information of his whereabouts should contact officers as soon as possible. Jenkins is described as 5ft 10in tall, medium build, with short brown hair, often cropped. He sometimes wears glasses and is usually clean shaven.
