Police have arrested a man who was wanted in connection with a burglary after he was traced to a resort in Spain.

David Buisson was sought by police over a burglary in the Theydon Bois area in 2016.

The 48-year-old, from Ongar, was arrested in the town of Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol on April 16.

His arrest followed a joint operation by Essex Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, and the National Crime Agency (NCA).

Authorities are now preparing papers for his extradition back to the UK.

Mr Buisson had been wanted in connection to a burglary on Boxing Day 2016, in which a large quantity of jewellery was stolen.
