A major new police operation linked to the investigation into the gangland murder of Gary Hutch is under way in Spain.

Sources have confirmed that gardaí have returned to Spain to help with searches and arrests.

Murder suspect James Quinn was held in Madrid in September and is in custody after being remanded in jail by a court in Fuengirola. Police also raided the MGM gym in Puerto Banus, which is linked to the Kinahan crime cartel.

The court probing Hutch's September 2015 killing near Fuengirola is understood to have placed a secrecy order on the ongoing operation.

A source said: "Three Garda officers are present in Spain and a second operation stemming from September's operation is ongoing. Several premises are being searched and my understanding is arrests have taken place."
