George Osborne: 'HMRC will catch tax fugitives'

Only one of the UK's 20 most-wanted alleged fraudsters and tax evaders named on a government list last year has been caught, it has emerged.

The Chancellor George Osborne has vowed to catch those still at large after HM Revenue and Customs published the names and photographs of people it said had cost taxpayers millions in lost revenue.

He said: "The message to people who evade their taxes is very clear: we are coming to get you and we will catch you."
