A Manchester man has been arrested in the Netherlands after an investigation into money laundering and drugs.

Glenn Madden, from Urmston, was held on a European arrest warrant by Dutch police officers on 16 June and will appear at an Amsterdam court this week.

British detectives said they would seek to have the 36-year-old extradited to the UK, where he is accused of money laundering and drugs conspiracy.

His arrest follows a collaboration between Dutch and British police.
