madrid. Expat residents and holidaymakers are being asked to help fight crime in the UK during these summer holidays. Britain's National Crime Agency (NCA) is trying to find the last 11 of the UK's most wanted fugitives with known links to Spain.
The NCA works closely with Crimestoppers, the Spanish authorities, UK law enforcement agencies and the British Embassy in Madrid as part of the Operation Captura campaign. Eighty-four fugitives have been returned to the UK out of 96 publicised cases; 11 are left to track down.
In June, Christopher Guest More Jr, 41, became the latest fugitive to be arrested and returned to the UK after being on the run for 16 years.
Andy Cooke-Welling, of the NCA said: "Operation Captura has been a resounding success. But we are still hunting the remaining fugitives on our list and will not stop."
More details on the fugitives can be found online (www.crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/most-wanted). To give information anonymously, you can call 0800 555 111 (UK) or 900 555 111 (Spain).
