Triple killer Alan Reeve, arrested in the Irish Republic this month after absconding from Broadmoor special hospital in 1981, yesterday agreed to return to Britain in accordance with an application for his extradition.

Reeve, 49, is expected to be flown to Britain within 48 hours, after signing consent to two extradition warrants in Dublin. He told Dublin District Court he was agreeing to be extradited because he was confident he would be released from detention on his return, because of his "good behaviour over a long period of time".
