A 50-year-old man is wanted by police after a stolen van crashed into a wall and the driver fled the scene.

Royston Whitehead from Swindon is white, of medium build, 5ft 8" tall with dark brown hair and green eyes.

The van was stolen from outside a Swindon address way back in May 2015.

It was seen later that evening driving at speed and swerving all over the road before it crashed into a garden wall.

Witnesses saw the driver trying to re-start the engine before giving up, jumping out of the vehicle and running away.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: "We gave Royston the chance to engage with the police by writing to him at his last known address before posting our appeal.

"He never got in touch.

"We are asking you to help us catch up with Royston as quickly as possible.

"If you see Royston Whitehead, do not approach him but please call police on 999 with his exact location, direction of travel and description of clothing and any items he is carrying referencing our Wanted This Winter campaign."

If you have any information regarding Royston Whitehead please call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
