Lancashire sex offender extradited from Holland

A registered sex offender from Lancashire has been extradited from Holland after being on the run for three months.

Dennis Bowskill, 43, from Padiham was wanted for making and possessing indecent images of children.

He had been due to appear at Burnley Crown Court on 8 March 2010, but failed to appear.

He was caught by Dutch police at Amsterdam railway station in June after a European arrest warrant was issued.

Mr Bowskill, who has been described by Lancashire police as "one of the UK's most wanted sex offenders", was featured on BBC Crimewatch and in the Dutch media while he was wanted by police.
