Roscommon man arrested in Enniskillen on European warrant

A 45-year-old man from County Roscommon has been arrested in Northern Ireland under a European Arrest Warrant.

The man was detained in Enniskillen on Tuesday evening and is expected to appear before Belfast's Recorders Court later on Wednesday.

It is understood he had failed to notify police in the Republic of a change of residence as required under the 2001 Sex Offenders Act.

A PSNI spokesman said extradition proceedings would be initiated.
