British man arrested in Los Cristianos under European Arrest Warrant for child sex abuse

Police say that a 53-year-old British man who was the subject of a European Arrest Warrant for child sexual abuse has been detained in Los Cristianos. The man had been living in various locations throughout south Tenerife including caves and squats, presumably in order to avoid detection, but he was apprehended near the Cultural Centre and arrested inside it after a short chase. He has been handed over to the judicial authorities for what is now likely to be an extradition to the UK for trial.
