Spanish terror suspect Raul Angel Fuentes Villota, who was arrested in Liverpool this morning, has been wanted since 1995 and is allegedly responsible for several murders.

A police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police has arrested this morning a 46-year-old Spanish national who was wanted in connection with historic terrorism offences in Spain in 1991.

"Following a period of imprisonment he has since failed to adhere to the conditions of his release and subsequently a European Arrest Warrant was issued for his arrest and return to prison.

"He has been detained and Merseyside Police is liaising with the Spanish Embassy in relation to his extradition."
