A convicted sex offender from Bradford has been arrested in France after going on the run.

56-year-old George Doulat failed to attend court after being convicted of sex offences against a 19-year-old woman in Bradford.

Police enquiries indicated he had fled to France and as a result of work with Interpol and the French authorities, he was subsequently arrested on Monday night in Calais.

Arrangements are currently being made for his return to face justice.
