The warrant lists 38 offences, including 29 contact offences which allegedly occurred between 1976 and 1978.

The other offences are related to alleged indecent images of children and causing or inciting sexual activity with a child between 2007 and 2013.

A Maltese court ruled Davies will be extradited to the UK , the pensioner agreed to the extradition, which should happen within 10 days.
