A man who skipped bail on the final day of his trial at Swindon Crown Court earlier this year has been located and arrested.

In his absence, John Arthur Radley, 57, from the Finsbury Park area of London, was subsequently found guilty of 16 sexual offences against children which took place in Chippenham, Calne and London.

He failed to turn up to Swindon Crown Court on May 8.

He was located on Friday at an address in Stockport.

He is currently in hospital but will be brought back to Swindon Crown Court for sentencing as soon as he is discharged from hospital.
