Nottinghamshire Police has shared pictures from a wanted man’s Tinder account on Twitter in a bid to help track him down.

The police force is taking to social media to find Henry Spencer who is wanted in connection with a gross bodily harm offence.

However, instead of a traditional wanted poster, the force has found and repurposed images from Spencer’s Tinder dating account in a bid to question him over an incident of GBH inflicted on a woman on 16 November, last year.

The 28-year-old allegedly set up the Tinder account under a false name and is suspected to be in the Doncaster area.

Earlier this week a dating profile also came back to bite a homophobic preacher.

An LGBT publication found and exposed Reverend Matthew Makela's Grindr account which he was using to meet up with other gay men while condeming homosexuality in church and on social media.
