London, Oct 5 : Pop paedophile Gary Glitter has been threatened with a 1million pounds bounty on his head if he ever leaves the UK for Spain.
Glitter had made plans to start a new life on the Costa Del Sol, but when gangland bosses heard of it, they vowed that they would kill him if he ever set foot in Spain.
"If Gary Glitter sets foot in Spain, he's dead. One of the biggest British gangsters in Spain is so concerned about him trying to start a new life over here he has offered 1million pounds to anyone who takes him out," Daily Star quoted a gangland source as saying.
"What he has done to all those kids is just disgusting and he should be locked up for life.
"But as the courts have decided to set him free, people over here have decided to take the law into their own hands...and there are plenty of people who would be happy to kill him.
"The money is just a bonus. Most of the gangsters would be happy to bump him off for nothing," the source stated.
Glitter, 64, was planning to buy a posh pad in Puerto Banus in Marbella, but was stopped by police from going to Spain via France last week, and a Foreign Travel Order was granted banning him from leaving the country.
The area is a popular celebrity spot, and Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, had been hoping to lose himself among them, but the area also happens to house a number of families with young children, making drug barons and gangsters, who run the resort, want him out.
"There are a lot of guys out here who are violent men on the run from the police in the UK. They have nothing to lose by wiping out Glitter," the source revealed.
"No one wants him here and even though these are bad guys, they care about kids and they don't want him preying on the youngsters who come here for a nice holiday," the source added.
Glitter has been banned from travelling to France or Spain by Ashford magistrates.
