George Michael's former partner is being sought by police after he failed to turn up to court.

Fadi Fawaz did not appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court earlier to face a criminal damage charge.

The 44-year-old is accused of smashing a shop window at Le Fix Natural Beauty Bar in Fitzrovia in December.

District judge Alexander Jacobs issued an arrest warrant for Mr Fawaz, who failed to attend the same court last month.

Mr Fawaz, a hairdresser from Islington in north London, discovered Michael's body at the singer's home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, on 25 December 2016 when he arrived to wake him ahead of a planned Christmas lunch.

The former Wham! front man, famous for hits including Careless Whisper, Faith and Freedom, was 53 at the time of his death.

A coroner found he died of natural causes resulting from heart and liver disease.
