An Albanian double murderer on the run in the UK faces extradition after being caught in the Home Counties.

Avni Metra was wanted by Interpol after a court in Albania convicted and sentenced him over two brutal killings in his absence.

The 53-year-old was arrested as he drove through Watford, Hertfordshire, on Wednesday by officers from the Metropolitan Police after a tip-off from the Daily Mail.

He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday for an extradition hearing.
