THE two British bobbies who patrolled Spanish party resorts this summer have inadvertently captured a convicted killer. 

PC Martina Anderson and Sgt Brett Williams, have been praised for helping track down Ashley James who went AWOL after escaping from UK prison five years ago.

The pair had previously been criticised after Anderson admitted she was ‘sozzled’ while on patrol in Magaluf.

Former teacher James, 30, was given a 10-year sentence for manslaughter in 2008 for killing his student Uriel Johnson, who was stabbed to death in Bilston, West Midlands.

The officers – who also spent two weeks on the streets of Ibiza – were alerted to James when they were called to a domestic incident in Magaluf.

James had fled the scene by the time they arrived but the officers continued to work to find out where he was hiding out.
