A £5,000 reward is being offered for information about a “very dangerous” convicted murderer on the run in London.

William Kerr, 53, is believed to have fled to the capital after breaching his licence on release from prison. He disappeared from approved premises in Hull.

North Yorkshire Police and Crimestoppers are now appealing for anyone with details about his whereabouts to come forward and get in touch.

Kerr, who speaks with a Scottish accent, was jailed for life at Leeds Crown Court on 26 June 1998 along with co-defendant Christopher Moody for the murder of 43-year-old Maureen Comfort in Leeds.

He was released on licence on January 23 this year. North Yorkshire Police, which has previously warned members of the public not to approach him but to call 999 if they spot him, believes he also has links to East Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of £5,000 for information that leads to his arrest.
