A dangerous man with Seaford and Brighton contacts who was sought by police after the murder of a man in Hertfordshire on Saturday was arrested in London early this morning (Wednesday July 17).

Ian McLoughlin, 55, is being held by police over the murder of a pensioner who was stabbed after going to the aid of his neighbour - a convicted paedophile - during a robbery.

After the death of Graham Buck on Saturday, Hertfordshire Police appealed for help in tracing McLoughlin.

Mr Buck, 66, received fatal stab wounds when he responded to cries from the home of 86-year-old Francis Cory-Wright in the village of Little Gaddesden, near Berkhamsted.

McLouglin was on day release from Springhill prison in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, after being convicted in 1992 and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Peter Halls, 56, from Brighton. He was 22 years into his sentence.
