Neighbours reported seeing armed police surrounding the house as officers from the Metropolitan Police's extradition squad were joined by local police in a joint operation.

A European warrant had been issued by French authorities for the arrest of Barry Finch, who is alleged to have murdered Jean-Jacques Berteloot on November 1, 2002.

He will appear before City of Westminster magistrates tomorrow.
