British paedophile held on Costa del Sol

A man, believed to be one of the most wanted paedophiles in Wales, has been arrested.

The British detainee has been on the run since 2006, said officers from the Guardia Civil.

The arrest on the Costa del Sol marks the end of several months of difficult investigation, as the man allegedly made concerted efforts to hide his identify and there was no record of him locally. On arrest, he tried to destroy a mobile storage device with 80,000 images of abuse, police said.
