Wanted killer driver found by police

A KILLER driver who was wanted by police after breaching his licence has been found.

Richie Sillence (25) was caged for seven years in 2008 after being convicted of death by dangerous driving.

Passenger Joe Aveling (18), from Maltby, was tricked by Sillence into accepting a lift in a stolen Citroen and died when it crashed at Braithwell.

Sillence, of Woodhouse Green in Thurcroft, was placed on licence upon his release from a young offenders’ institution earlier this year.

But he failed to comply and is suspected of committing criminal damage to a vehicle.

South Yorkshire Police issued an appeal for Sillence last Wednesday and he was arrested by officers on Friday.
