POLICE are on the hunt for two men wanted in connection with a kidnap.

Matthew Finn, from Southampton, and Thierry Mpia are currently on the run from the police following an alleged kidnapping.

Police say it comes after an incident in Watford, in which a man in his 40s was taken in a car against his will.

He was later taken to Hampshire, before escaping.

A man in his 20s, from Basingstoke, was later arrested in connection with the incident.

Finn, 28, is last known to have lived at Cuckmere Lane in Southampton.

Mpia, aged 31, is last known to have lived in Maple Cross, Hertfordshire.

The pair have links to Hertfordshire, North London, Newbury in Berkshire, Basingstoke and Southampton.

A police spokesperson said: "Anyone who sees them should not approach them and should instead contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via 999 immediately."
