'Most wanted' fugitive Andrew Moran arrested in Spain

One of Britain's most wanted fugitives has been arrested in a raid on a luxury villa on Spain's Costa Blanca.

Andrew Moran, 31, from Salford, Manchester, was detained after a pursuit by police in the Alicante resort of Calpe on Friday.

He had been charged with an armed robbery of Royal Mail guards in Lancashire in 2005 but absconded during his trial.

The jury later returned a guilty verdict and he was convicted in his absence.

Danny Savage reports.
