A MAN wanted on a prison recall has links to Ilminster and Crewkerne.

Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace 34-year-old Joseph Bushnell.

A spokesperson said: “We want the public to call us if they know where Joseph Bushnell is.

“The 34-year-old is wanted on a prison recall. We also wish to talk to him in connection with a separate assault investigation.

“He is described as white, about 6ft 3ins, of a large build, and has tattoos.

“We understand Bushnell has links to Ilminster, Bridgwater, and Crewkerne.

“If you see him, we’d ask you call 999 giving reference 5224158902 rather than approach, or call 101 with any other information.”
