Gary Vickery (38) previously pleaded guilty to playing a role in a €27m British drug operation.

However he failed to turn up at a court hearing in July of this year where he was due to be remanded in custody, according to a statement from Britain’s National Crime Agency.

He was detained in Lanzarote last month by the Guardia Civil, in partnership with the NCA.

Staff from the NCA escorted Vickery on a flight from Lanzarote, where he was arrested by Spanish Police, to England yesterday.

 Gary Vickery will appear before Ipswich Crown Court today.

Vickery’s co-accused, senior Kinahan associate Thomas Kavanagh, 53, from Tamworth and Daniel Canning, 42, originally from Dublin are both in custody awaiting sentencing.

Both pleaded guilty to conspiring to import class A and B drugs and money laundering.

Canning also pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm and ammunition.

They are due to appear in court again for a case hearing on Friday December 3.
