A convicted murderer who is on the run from Hull will feature on Crimewatch tonight.

William Kerr absconded from a bail hostel in the city on March 26th. Police believe the 53-year-old, who speaks with a Scottish accent, has travelled to the London area and may be trying to book accommodation using a false name.

He was jailed for life for the murder of Maureen Comfort in Leeds in 1998.

Detective Inspector Eamonn Clarke, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “Kerr is a very dangerous man, so if you see him, please do not approach him. Dial 999 right away and we will send officers to investigate.”

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