Wanted conman Martin Evans extradited from South Africa

A fugitive conman, drug dealer and money launderer from Swansea has been extradited to the UK from South Africa.

Martin Evans, 52, was arrested by armed police in Johannesburg in August after three years on the run.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said Evans was flown into Heathrow airport on Friday and taken to a high security prison.

His scams included swindling 87 investors out of £900,000 in an ostrich farm fraud in south Wales.
