AN ICELANDIC paedophile who abused his daughter has been arrested in Benissa on the northern Costa Blanca.

The perverted parent had been sentenced to jail for 12 years in Denmark over the assaults but ran away to Spain.

His daughter suffered a series of horrific attacks between 2006 and 2010 in Iceland and Denmark when she was aged under 12.

She was seriously injured a number of times by being beaten on her head and body with various objects if she resisted her father’s predatory sexual advances.

The girl is said to have endured at least ten sex assaults at his hands.

The Policia Nacional learned in June that the fugitive might be hiding in Spain and launched an operation to track him down.

Investigations took them to Benissa where he was spotted and put under surveillance before he was arrested close to his home.
