It was the first national online source of wanted individuals across the UK for crimes including murder, sexual assault and burglary.

Gemma Wilson, Yorkshire and Humberside regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: “Most Wanted appeals to the nation’s ‘arm chair’ detectives – those who want to help fight crime from the safety of their own home and, above all else, anonymously.

“It was quite ground-breaking when it first launched as the first national online source of wanted individuals and it continues to be an important tool.”
