A DUDLEY man who failed to appear at court is wanted by police.

An appeal has been launched to find Craig Thompson, who is wanted after failing to attend court following a serious assault in the borough last year and a robbery in Sandwell in 2017.

Police have released a photo of the 46-year-old today (Tuesday, December 10) in a bid to trace him.

Anyone who has any information about Craig Thompson's whereabouts should contact police on 101 and quote crime reference number 20DY/298170K/18.
