A teenage convicted sex offender from Blackpool who went missing from his bail hostel has been recaptured.

Ryan Humpage, 19, who was reportedly given an 18-month jail term last August for sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl, had failed to report to a hostel in Bury on Saturday, Greater Manchester Police said.

He was the subject of a Crimewatch appeal by Lancashire Police in April last year over fears he may have fled to Ireland at a time he 
was wanted on suspicion of rape. He was later arrested in County Antrim in Northern Ireland and returned to England.

On Sunday evening a Greater Manchester Police spokesman said a man had been found and arrested.
