A man wanted by police on suspicion of fraud worth hundreds of thousands of pounds has been arrested.

Police had believed Alan Smith, from Boxted, Suffolk, may have been living in Sheffield but he was arrested in Lancashire last night.

The 56-year-old was featured on Crimewatch last week as detectives appealed for help in locating him.

He is to be quizzed today about allegations of fraud affecting 20 victims.
