A convicted murderer wanted by the PSNI has been arrested by An Garda Síochána.

Thomas McCabe was on the run for a year and a half.

He was sentenced to life in jail for beating a teenage boy to death in London in 1990.

The 56-year-old, originally from the North, broke the terms of his conditional release in 2018 and absconded.

Extensive enquiries have been carried out by police in efforts to locate him.

The PSNI says he has been captured south of the border and is in Garda custody.

Speaking last month, PSNI Detective Constable Julie McVeagh said: "In January 2018 Thomas McCabe's licence was revoked following a number of breaches."

"We have obtained and are now able to share a more recent photograph of Thomas McCabe, and we hope that this image will enable someone out there to recognise him and come forward with his location.

"I would urge people to look at this picture and if you have seen Thomas McCabe or know where he is living to contact detectives."

"I would also appeal directly to Thomas to hand himself in."

The  charity Crimestoppers also offered a reward of up to stg£5,000 (€5,584) for information that led to McCabe's arrest.
