YORKSHIRE'S most wanted man is still on the run after more than nine years. 

Shazad Ghafoor has been on the run since 2015 with police still on the hunt for him in the Yorkshire and the Humber and North West areas.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has a page on its website dedicated to its Most Wanted criminals.

There are currently 22 people listed there - including Ghafoor - and the NCA warns the public not to approach any of them and ring 999 in an emergency.

Ghafoor is wanted for drug trafficking and fraud offences.

He took a courtesy car from a dealership in Manchester in August 2013, using a driving licence in another person's name, according to the NCA.

Police spotted the car and a chase began.

This ended in the Halifax area when Ghafoor crashed.

The NCA said: "His wife and two children, who were also in the car, suffered minor injuries.

"Cash to the value of £80-100,000 was recovered.

"There were traces of heroin, cocaine and cannabis on the notes."

Ghafoor was charged with fraud, possession of criminal property, dangerous driving, and driving while disqualified.

He was also charged with possession of cannabis with intent to supply after a vehicle was searched in Withington, a suburb of Manchester, in November 2013. 

Cannabis worth £245,000 was found in the vehicle, according to the NCA.

Ghafoor pleaded guilty to dangerous driving in May 2014.

The NCA said he was due to appear at court in February 2015 in relation to the other charges but failed to answer his bail and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Ghafoor was also charged with possession of cannabis with intent to supply in relation to a separate seizure of the drug in September 2014.

Cannabis worth £24,000 was found at a house on Kingsway Avenue, in Burnage, Manchester, according to the NCA.

Ghafoor was due to appear in court but failed to answer his bail and another warrant was issued for his arrest.

He is described as an Asian male, who is 5ft 11ins tall, and of medium build.

The NCA said he has a "pock mark" on his right cheek, a scar on the right of his nose, and another on top of his right hand.
