Man arrested in search for missing sex offender

Police searching for a missing sex offender have arrested a 45-year-old man in County Cavan in Ireland.

Earlier this week a search was launched for Lorcan Halton, from Glasgow, who did not attend a scheduled court date on 15 January.

He was last seen at Cairnryan, Dumfries and Galloway, on 9 January, where he boarded a ferry to Belfast.

Om Monday, police appealed for the public's assistance after extensive inquiries proved unsuccessful.

The public had been warned not to approach him.
