A DANGEROUS criminal on the run after being recalled to prison is still at large and believed to be in Dorset.

Lee Hogben was released from jail on the condition that he reside at an address in Somerset.

However, he failed to turn up there and has since been recalled to prison.

The 29-year-old, who was jailed for three years in February 2012 for stealing a refuse lorry and smashing into police cars during a 70-mile chase, is thought to be in Poole.

Police have warned the public not to approach him but to dial 999 if they see him. Anyone with information is asked to call Dorset Police on 101.
