One of UK's most wanted tracked down in Cumbria

One of the UK's most wanted fugitives has been arrested in Cumbria.

Police tracked down Brian Thexton, who is from County Durham, at a remote farmhouse near Kirkby Stephen last night.

He is accused of being involved in robberies and awaiting trial for conspiracy to supply cocaine.

Detectives had thought he may be hiding in Spain.

He was spotted two weeks ago in Lancaster but escaped police who tried to stop him.
