Police issue appeal for wanted men

Detectives in Newham are appealing for help from the public in tracing the whereabouts of eight wanted men with East London links.

The men, who are not linked to each other, are being recalled to prison after breaching the terms of their release.

Members of the public are advised not to approach any of the suspects but instead contact police with any relevant information by calling 999 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Two of the men, Dennis Hourigan, 31, and Colin Brady, 37, (both pictured) have been convicted of serious offences.

Hourigan, who was convicted for affray on November 8, 2006, is also believed to have links in Sheffield and Ireland, and has been outstanding since November 17, 2010.
