Police are appealing information on the whereabouts of three members of the 'unruly' British tourists in relation to a series of alleged roofing scams in the Auckland region.

A warrant is out for the arrest of 26-year-old James Anthony Nolan.

Police are also seeking to locate British nationals Tommy Ward, 26, and William Donohue, 25.

Nolan failed to appear in Auckland District Court for a second time this morning - where name suppression lapsed.

He's charged with fraud, reckless driving and assault with a weapon.

The assault and driving charges are the result of an incident on Auckland's Takapuna Beach last month.

Krista Curnow was at Takapuna Beach on January 13 when the alleged driving incident unfolded

She alleged a car veered towards her and the British driver tried to take her cellphone while she tried to take a picture of the car's licence plate.

She was pleased to hear police had taken action and followed through, she said.

A family of British tourists made headlines around the world since a video emerged of rubbish being strewn on the beach reserve, a court appearance for theft, refusal to pay for food or services as well as hectoring hospitality staff.

The first incident was filmed and showed confrontational behaviour at Takapuna Beach, with a young boy threatening to "knock your brains out" when challenged by locals.

The wanted British man is the second member of the group to be have been charged by police.
