A man on Kent Police's Most Wanted list has been tracked down in Italy.

Rafiullah Hamidy, 24, was being sought in connection with a rape in the Northwood Road area of Ramsgate last September.

He was arrested by local police in Taranto, southern Italy, after Kent officers secured a European Arrest Warrant.

Mr Hamidy is due to appear in an Italian court to face an extradition hearing, the force said.
