POLICE are hunting a convicted Wigan robber.

Ashley Vickers is wanted on prison recall after breaching the terms of his licence on release from jail.

The 26-year-old was given a five-year sentence for robbing the Betfred shop in Leigh’s King Street.

Vickers, who hails from the Kitt Green area, was released from prison on licence in April this year.

But that licence was revoked earlier this month after he failed to observe curfew restrictions.

Vickers is currently circulated as wanted and is known to have links to the Atherton area.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
