AN Algerian ‘career criminal’ who has been arrested in Spain 92 times has been deported to the UK.

Lazhari Zemouche has been sent to the UK after apparently undertaking a ‘marriage of convenience’ to acquire a UK passport.

It comes after the 45-year-old ‘career criminal’ apparently married a British woman.

Spanish police admit he is now free to roam the streets in Britain unless he becomes a ‘wanted man’.

Records show Zemouche has been arrested throughout Spain since 1987 for crimes including theft and robbery. He has served several jail terms.
