The 62-year-old was jailed for life at Teeside Crown Court in October 1980 after being found guilty of murder.

Lund was released on licence from HM Prison Elmley on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, in 2015 but is since believed to have defrauded a woman of £30,000 and breached his licence in other ways.

His last known address was at a caravan park in Pett Level Road, but he also has links to North Wales.

Lund, a Mancunian by birth, is described as white, 5’10”, of slim build, with blue eyes and bald. He speaks with a north-west regional accent.

He is known to wear spectacles and may be in possession of an 02 registered silver Jaguar X-type saloon car.

A warrant for his arrest has been issued and anyone seeing Lund is asked not to approach him but to call police immediately on 999.

Anyone knowing of his whereabouts or having other information about him is asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting reference 1235 of 27/09.

Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
