Police catch wanted Stratford ex-convict

Editorial Correspondent 12th Dec, 2017 Updated: 13th Dec, 2017

POLICE have found an ex-convict they feared was a ‘threat’ to the public.

Michael Grantham from Stratford – who was released from HMP Hewell in October – was found in Cheltenham last night (Tuesday).

The urgent re-appeal was launched after the 38-year-old was believed to have breached the conditions of his release.

Grantham served a sentence for possession of an offensive weapon, and obstruct or resist a person assisting a constable in execution of duty.

Police have thanked those who shared the appeal.
