A man who is breached the terms of his licence is still being hunted by police.

Michael Oarton, 32, is wanted on recall to prison for breaching the terms of his licence.

Police mistakenly said he had been arrested in Hingham today (Friday, April 7), but later corrected this to say he is still on the loose.

However, another man, 30-year-old Matthew Oarton, of no fixed abode, has been charged with assault following an incident in Gypsy Lane, Norwich on Sunday, April 2.

He appeared before virtual court today. He was remanded in custody with a future court date to be fixed.
