AN alleged hit squad have been arrested on the Costa del Sol.
Five British men and an Irish woman have been detained in Marbella, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.
Officers from Greater Manchester Police believe the six arrested were planning to avenge the murder of Salford’s ‘Mr Big’ Paul Massey.
Massey was gunned down in his home in Manchester in July last year.
It is believed that the man behind Massey’s assassination is hiding out on the Costa del Sol.
Massey himself was never convicted of gangland crime, although he served 14 years in prison for stabbing a man in the groin and leaving him for dead.
