Missing sex offender Geoffrey Ball found by police

A sex offender who was wanted by police after failing to register with them has been found.

Cleveland Police had warned the public not to approach 41-year-old Geoffrey Ball, who they said had a history of violence.

He was arrested in the Greater Manchester area earlier on suspicion of breach of notification.

Ball was placed on the sex offenders register until 2017 following a prison sentence in 2010 for sexual assault.
