56 year old Stephen Burnell was named on a list of the 10 most wanted fugitives believed to be hiding in Spain's 'Costa del Crime'.

He was arrested on Wednesday and will return to the UK to face a jail term of 9 years imprisonment.

He was sentenced in his absence for a string of sex offences, including crimes against a nine year old girl.
