Gilmore was previously hunted by police and found after he injured himself on railings years ago.

In November 2017 emergency services were called to Kirkdale after receiving reports of a man with serious leg wounds.

The man was Terrence Gilmore and he was taken to hospital for treatment after he suffered lacerations to both his legs after injuring himself on railings on Alderney Road, in Kirkdale.

He was later arrested on suspicion of a taxi driver robbery.
