Rikki suspect now back in UK

A 35-year-old man from Peterborough, arrested in connection with the historic murder of six-year-old Rikki Neave, has been returned to the UK.

After appearing in court in Portugal on Thursday, August 4, he has now been extradited.

He has been taken to Bedford prison after breaching the terms of his licence and will now be dealt with by the probation service.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit travelled to Portugal to return him and would like to thank the National Crime Agency and Polícia Judiciária for their support.

They would also like to acknowledge the Crown Prosecution Service for their assistance with the matter.
