Man arrested in Sheffield as part of international investigation into cricket match fixing

A third suspect has been arrested in connection with bribery offences linked to international cricket match spot-fixing.

Officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) arrested the British man, who is in his 30s, this morning in Sheffield as part of its ongoing investigation.

He has since been bailed pending further inquiries.

Two men, also in their 30s, were arrested by NCA officers on Monday February 13 and were bailed until April.

The NCA said earlier this month that it is working on an investigation with the Pakistan Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption units.

A spokesman said the Pakistan Cricket Board has launched its own investigation, which has resulted in the suspension of three players.

The falling branches smashed down onto the road as Paul Smith drove through Spalding in Lincolnshire, a scene he captured on his dashboard camera.

He posted the video on the Facebook page of his Paul Smith LDC Driving School, writing: "All in the day of being a driving instructor!

"Feeling very lucky that I managed to stop before I became a pancake due to this tree falling in Spalding this morning - thanks Doris!

"Need a strong coffee or something a little stiffer!!!"
