A businessman at the centre of alleged planning corruption has been arrested outside Dublin's Four Courts.

Fraud detectives detained James Kennedy on Arran Quay after he walked out of a High Court hearing on the 53 million euro (£46 million) hike in land prices at Carrickmines in south Dublin.

The 63-year-old, who has been wanted for questioning by the Criminal Assets Bureau for the last seven years, had been living in Gibraltar.

A Garda source confirmed he was arrested at 4.15pm on suspicion of bribery offences and taken to Irishtown Garda station under section four of the Criminal Justice Act.
