Police are renewing appeals for information to trace a Wembley man who failed to appear at court.

Ridwan Ali, 23, whose last known address is in Northwick Road, failed to appear at Kingston Crown Court on October 30 last year.

He was due to answer two charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving without insurance, Scotland Yard said.

The charges relate to a road traffic collision on Garratt Lane in Wandsworth on July 21 2020.

It is now believed that he may have travelled to the Manchester area.

A warrant for Ali's arrest was issued by the court when he failed to appear.

Officers would like to speak with anyone who may have seen Ali or who knows of his whereabouts.
