Sky News Crime Correspondent on the hunt for news stories and a little levity on a grim beat

Explicit IS Exhibition Branded 'Grotesque' — A crime museum has opened with a graphic exhibition of the horrific crimes of the Islamic State terror group. The display includes many before and after images of the beheading of hostages in Syria and Iraq. A senior MP condemned the exhibition and said it would cause anguish to victims' families.

Revealed: Britain's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives — A killer, a rapist and a suspected child abuser are on a new list of most wanted British fugitives being hunted in Spain. Police are appealing to thousands of expats and holidaymakers to help track them down and get them extradited to the UK.

£70m Cocaine Smuggling Plot Suspect Hunted — A suspect in a £70m cocaine smuggling plot is among 10 British fugitives thought to be on the run in Spain. Detectives believe David McDermott fled the UK after the discovery of the drugs hidden in a consignment of frozen Argentinean beef at Tilbury docks.

Pete Doherty Crucifixion Sculpture Auctioned — A controversial sculpture of the singer Pete Doherty nailed to a cross is being auctioned next week. The life-size artwork was created to reflect what the artists considered to be Doherty's "crucifixion by the media".

Police Forces Lose Track Of 396 Sex Offenders — Police have lost track of almost 400 registered sex offenders they should be monitoring, include a child rapist who vanished two years ago, official figures have revealed. Others have been off the police radar for much longer, one for 14 years.

Appeal To Find 'Dangerous' Foreign Suspects — Police are appealing for help in finding 17 "dangerous" foreign suspects thought to be on the run in the UK. One is wanted for battering a man to death with a baseball bat for arguing with his girlfriend. Another is suspected of the human trafficking of teenage girls, a third man is a convicted rapist.

Music Teacher Jailed for Sex Attacks On Girls — Sky News - First for Breaking News, video, headlines, analysis and top stories from business, politics, entertainment and more in the UK and worldwide.

Convicted Killer In Last-Ditch DNA Appeal — A convicted killer has launched a last-ditch attempt to compel a police force to hand over forensic samples he believes can be retested to prove his innocence. Kevin Nunn says new techniques could be used on scientific evidence that was inconclusive or too small to be tested for DNA when he was arrested 10 years ago.

Police Officers Abusing Their Power - Report — Police officers are abusing their power to get sexual favours and drugs, a report reveals, and it's feared that new force budget cuts could breed staff anger and more corruption. The abuse of power was first highlighted two years ago, but is happening just as much now, according to Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary .

Shoplifting Surge 'Not Taken Seriously' — Police forces are being accused of not doing enough to tackle a boom in shoplifting. A survey shows a 36% rise in the money lost in shop thefts, the highest figure for a decade. But most shoplifting goes unreported because shopkeepers do not believe the police will respond, according to the British Retail Consortium (BRC).
