Here are the UK's most wanted criminals: Can you help find these 27 people?

It's always a satisfying feeling to know a criminal has been taken off the streets.

The justice system can fail the public sometimes, but occasionally the arm of the law catches up with those who really need to be dealt with for the good of society.

Unfortunately there are 27 people out there who are wanted by police in the UK - and all of them are listed on the Government's National Crime Agency (NCA) website as some of the country's most wanted men and women, reports the Leicester Mercury.

Some are thought to be abroad, but others could be hiding away in Plymouth.

If you think you recognise anyone here - do not approach them.

A spokesman for the NCA said: "In an emergency, call 999.

"If you know the whereabouts of a wanted fugitive please contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, via the online form or by calling 0800 555 111.

"Crimestoppers guarantee your anonymity; no-one will ever know who you are, you will not have to give a statement to the police and you will never have to go to court."

Here are the 27 - and the details of their sins...
