David Drumm is due to appear in court today - almost seven years after he left behind the fallout from the collapse of Anglo Irish Bank for a new life in the US.

The former Anglo chief executive is expected to touch down at Dublin Airport this morning accompanied by a small number of gardaí.

Detectives travelled to Boston late last week to collect Mr Drumm (49) after formalities surrounding his extradition were completed. He had spent much of the past five months in a maximum security prison.

On arrival in Dublin this morning, he is expected to be brought straight to a garda station to be formally charged.

He is facing 33 charges, including ones for fraud and false accounting in Anglo.
