    Guardia Civil murder suspect arrested in UK

    A BRITISH gangster suspected of murder by the Guardia Civil has been arrested after flying into the UK. 

    Paul John Scott, 32, was detained by British police at East Winch Airfield in Norfolk on Tuesday evening.

    Guardia Civil want to question Scott over the murder of  25-year-old Brit Francis Brennan, whose body washed up on a beach in Alicante in a plastic bag.

    He is also wanted by UK police for being a suspected member of a Merseyside-based crime group that allegedly plotted to smuggle 40 tons of drugs into the UK.

    Scott, who was found with €2,000 and a false Belgian identity card, was immediately charged with conspiracy to import cocaine.

    Greg McKenna, North West Investigations Branch Commander, said: “Paul Scott actively sought to evade arrest but thanks to a member of the public reporting their suspicions and great work by our partners his days on the run are over.”
