A man has been arrested in connection with the death of Richard Huckle, one of Britain's worst paedophiles, who posted on the so-called "dark web" as he abused up to 200 Malaysian children.

Huckle was found dead on October 13 last year at Full Sutton prison in Yorkshire, where he was serving 22 life sentence for his vile catalogue of crimes.

The Sun also reported that Huckle allegedly had ballpoint pens and condoms shoved down his throat.

Earlier this week Humberside Police said a 29-year-old man had been arrested in connection with the death.

Freelance photographer Huckle, from Ashford in Kent, was jailed in 2016 for an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.

As Huckle was sent down, a woman in the public gallery shouted out that "1000 deaths is too good for you".

In online posts, Huckle bragged: "Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.". »
