UK Police had deployed a helicopter and sniffer dogs in their search for JJ McMenamin over the weekend, who was wanted in connection with alleged driving offences.

The 30-year-old made sure he went down with flair by uploading a photo to Facebook of his face superimposed on a Where’s Wally shot along with the caption: "Dude... I'm right here."

A spokeswoman from North Yorkshire Police said: "A 30-year-old man from Middleham has been arrested after he handed himself in to officers at Harrogate Police Station.

"The arrest comes after extensive police searches for the man over the weekend, after he failed to turn up for a court hearing for driving offences."
