A British man wanted in connection with a series of violent assaults and sexual abuse was arrested in Cadiz on his 44th birthday. Named only as David M by the authorities but thought to be David McBride from Fife, he was detained after a raid on the city centre hostel where he was on holiday.
The man has a string of offences dating back to 2005 in his home town. These include sexual abuse and rape of minors, rape and assault of his partner when she was pregnant and physical assault of his three year old son. A European arrest warrant had been taken out against him in 2015 after he failed to turn up for trial. It is thought he has moved around Europe in the meantime but something triggered the authorities to the fact that he was in Cadiz. He is likely to face extradition back to the UK to face trial.
