The 44-year-old, from Beverley, also failed to appear at Hull Magistrates’ Court regarding a burglary charge in his home area. Whittaker is described as a transient criminal who sleeps rough and travels around the North of England. He is white, 5ft 5in tall, thin build, green eyes, and has straight, combed-back long brown hair.
