-The National Crime Agency's most wanted includes a man accused of raping a seven-year-old girl and another accused of murder.

-Christakis Philippou would attract customers with low price holidays and then cease trading before they left for their trips abroad.

-He is one of dozens being hunted by the National Crime Agency, alongside police forces around the country.

Their list also includes a man called Fatah Benlaredj who is wanted for the rape of a seven-year-old girl.

Another man is accused of two murders. Kevin Thomas Parle, from Liverpool, is wanted in connection with the murders of 16-year-old Liam Kelly in 2004 and Lucy Hargreaves in 2005.

Also being hunted is Mark Acklom, who is accused of defrauding a woman out of £850,000 when in a romantic relationship with her.

He claimed he was having cash flow problems when he was renovating a house for them to live in together, but disappeared after he had taken the money. She then discovered he had never owned the property.

Detectives had reports of two potential sightings of him in Spain earlier this year.

Members of the public are warned not to approach anyone they recognise from this list, but to contact police or crimestoppers with information.
