Michael Tordoff-Brown, aged 49, from Wortley, was detained without incident in Ilkley in the early hours of this morning following an operation by officers from West Yorkshire Police.

He is currently in custody.

His arrest follows earlier searches and appeals for information in Cumbria and North Yorkshire after he failed to attend Leeds Crown Court last week for trial on sexual offences.
