A fugitive paedophile from Yorkshire who was arrested in Cambodia and brought back to the UK following an investigation by North Yorkshire Police is due to appear in court today.

Damien Midgley, 39, was tried for child sex offences at York Crown Court in 2014 but he did not attend the hearing. He was convicted in his absence and sentenced to six years in jail.

He will appear at the same court again today to be sentenced for absconding.
