Detective Sergeant Victoria Willetts said: “Our investigation into a serious assault continues, and we would very much like to trace John Cole.

“Information from the public could be key to finding him in connection with a very nasty assault, and we’re also interested to know what car he is using and any places he may have been seen.

“I would urge anyone who has seen him, or knows where he could be, to get in contact with us as soon as possible.”
