One of Britain’s most wanted fugitives has been caught hiding naked in a panic room at his luxury Spanish villa, the Serious Organised Crime Agency has said.

Convicted drug trafficker Mark Lilley, of Cheshire, went on the run in 2000 when he skipped bail during a trial.

He was finally arrested when more than 40 armed police officers launched a dawn raid on his home in Malaga on Saturday.
