One of Britains most wanted fugitives has been captured in Barcelona.
Jamie Acourt was one of six youths suspected to have taken part in the racist murder of 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence 25 years ago.
He was arrested by armed officers outside a gym in the Spanish city following a huge police search to find him.
The 41-year-old from south London, is believed to be a kingpin behind a massive drugs operation.
He is the 81st fugitive to be located out of 96 publicised through Operation Captura – the multi-agency initiative between the National Crime Agency, Crimestoppers and the Spanish authorities.
Acourt, who was apprehended on a European Arrest Warrant, will now appear at court in Madrid early next week for an extradition hearing.
Ian Cruxton, Head of International Operations for the NCA, said: Acourt thought he could evade capture but as a result of an intelligence-led operation his days on the run have ended. We were able to direct the Spanish authorities to his location in Barcelona.
Our ability to share information and work at speed with our international partners ensures there is no safe haven for fugitives. We will never stop pursuing these individuals.
