British TV star locked up in a Spanish prison on suspicion of drug trafficking

This Is England actor Andrew Shim has been locked up in a Spanish prison on suspicion of drug trafficking.

The 37-year-old was arrested in Marbella – the millionaire’s playground rife with crime.

He is being held on remand at Alhaurin de la Torre prison near Malaga, which he entered on October 24 last year.

The Nottingham star was arrested by National Police three days earlier for drug trafficking.

A source said: “If he has done what he’s accused of – what is he up to? He had everything and he’ll have just thrown it all away.”

Shim is best-known for his roles in cult Shane Meadows films A Room for Romeo Brass, This Is England and Dead Man’s Shoes.

A spokesman for Spain’s National Police in Malaga said: “We can confirm a 37-year-old man was arrested on October 21 last year 
for drugs trafficking.”

Spanish Prison Service sources confirmed the same man was still being held on remand in jail.
