A fresh appeal was issued last night for a registered sex offender who has failed to provide police with details of his whereabouts.

Lee Whitting who was deported from New Zealand in 2010, is wanted by Avon and Somerset Police who would like to question him over an incident in Taunton where a woman was assaulted beside a canal.
