Philip Wells, 48, a former security guard at Heathrow Airport, was due to appear before Uxbridge magistrates today charged with stealing nearly a million pounds in July 1989.

Mr Wells, known as 'Florida Phil', was arrested on Wednesday night at a house in Forest Gate, east London. Three other people arrested at the same time were charged with agreeing to accept money for not disclosing Mr Wells's whereabouts despite knowing that he was alleged to have committed an arrestable offence.
