A wanted criminal contacted police via their Facebook page to ask them to change the image used in his mugshot - and he's still at large.

Daniel Damon communicated directly with the Victoria Police in Australia to ask them to change the image as it was "horrible".

Damon, who is wanted for failing to answer bail for traffic and drug offences, is still at large.

The 25-year-old was told by the officers operating the social media page to “Please visit your nearest police station and we’ll arrange for a new one to be taken!”

Damon replied to say he was planning to do so after he got a “few things in order.”

Speaking from Victoria, Senior Constable Melissa Seach told BBC News that the police were still on the search for Damon.

Seach urged anyone with information to come forward.
