Police are asking for help finding a man wanted for assault.

Essex Police are asking people in Haringey to help them find Gary Jeakins, who they suspect was involved in a hit and run incident in February.

A 27-year-old man was hit by car in Latchingdon, Essex, and suffered serious leg injuries.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Louise Wilson said: "Gary Jeakins is a man who is of interest to us after he was highlighted as a central character to this investigation.

“We've been told that he hasn't been in contact with any family members since February.”

She added: “If you see him, know of his day-to-day movements or have information on the February assault, then we want to hear from you."
