With a rucksack slung casually over his shoulder he could be any holidaymaker arriving back at Heathrow Airport on a flight from Australia.

But Clifford Tucker, 47, has no home in to return to in the UK, having lived on the other side of the world for more than 40 years.

He doesn't look much of a risk to me, but who's to say? He's served his time hasn't he?
