Ainsley West, a 20-year-old Leeds man who has strong links with Harrogate, and 18-year-old Harrogate man Luke Gibson are wanted in connection with a serious assault in Boroughbridge earlier this month.

William Smythe, 19, from Harrogate, is wanted for failing to attend court for drug offences.

Officers believe that all three men could be in the Harrogate area, and West may also be in Leeds.
