A Liverpudlian sex offender with links to Blackpool is being hunted by police after breaching the terms of his release.

Steven Pinnington is wanted by Lancashire Police for breaching the registered sex offender notification requirements.

The 39-year-old is 5ft 7ins tall, of slim build and with green eyes.

Pinnington has short dark hair and facial stubble.

He also has a mole on his right cheek, a scar on his right hand, a scar on his inside left wrist, and a v-shaped scar on his right arm.

Pinnington’s last known address was in Glasgow but it is currently thought he may have travelled to areas where he has links.

This includes Blackpool, Liverpool, Birmingham and Northern Ireland.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Police said: “Pinnington is wanted on recall to prison for breaching the sex offender notification requirements by not letting us know of his whereabouts.

“We would urge anyone who has seen him or knows where he is to come forward, anonymously if they want to.”
