These are the most-wanted national and international criminals in Spain at the moment

Spanish police have launched a campaign asking the public for help in locating them, but warn that some are extremely dangerous. Included on the list is Derek McGraw Ferguson (top left), who is wanted for manslaughter in Glasgow


They are the Top 10 of Spain, the ten most-wanted national and international criminals believed to be in this country at present, and the National Police have now launched a campaign to ask for help from the public in finding them.

Their profiles are very different. Some have been on the run for more than 15 years, others only recently. From murderers, child rapists, the heads of networks specialising in the trafficking of women to the biggest counterfeiter of money in the country.

Anyone who has any information which might help to locate any of them can contact the police in confidence by emailing, or by phoning 091.

The photos, from left to right and from top to bottom, show who the police are looking for.
