Police in France have arrested the second of paedophile twins who were on the run after a string of sex attacks on young children in the UK.

Thomas and Ken Parker, both 56, worked as mercenaries in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones before being convicted of sex offences and going into hiding.

Last month they became the first set of twins to be put on the list of the UK’s most wanted criminals by investigators.

The pair, who are not identical but look alike, are now in custody in France as attempts are made to extradite them to Britain.

The Parkers, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, were wanted for not informing probation officers they were travelling abroad.

Thomas was wanted for a recall to prison, where he had served a sentence for indecently assaulting a young girl.

He was arrested in Quillan, a village in the Pyrenees near the Spanish border. It is also believed he was held by French police on unrelated matters.

His brother Ken fled on learning of his brother’s detention but was later captured in the nearby mountains. He was wanted for a similar breach of the Sex Offenders Register.

He had been jailed for an indecent assault on a young boy and girl and gross indecency with a boy.

The twins’ details were posted last week on the Most Wanted website of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre, and on this page.

They were described as “high-risk” offenders with a history of violence.
