A REWARD of £1,000 is being offered in a bid to trace a man wanted by police who has connections with Somerset.

Andrew Doyle, 32, is wanted in connection with seven burglaries and for failing to turn up for a court appearance.

The burglaries took place in Woodstock, Charney Bassett, Oxford and Great Shefford, say Thames Valley Police.

He missed the court appearance on June 29.

Doyle is white, about 6ft tall, slim, with short brown hair and blue eyes.

He is believed to have links with Weston-super-Mare, as well as Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Ilfracombe, Northampton and Windsor.

Investigating officer DC Charles Boshell said: "We would ask for anyone who believes they have seen him to contact police."

Anyone with information should call 101 asking for Thames Valley Police and quoting reference 43180315544.
