A former top banker linked to the collapse of Anglo Irish Bank has returned to Ireland from the US after a four-month extradition battle, to face more than 30 legal charges.

David Drumm, chief executive of Anglo from 2005 to 2008, is facing charges that he acted as a key figure in Ireland’s worst banking disaster. The institution’s collapse in late 2008 sparked the Irish government debt crisis and subsequent ‘bailout’ from the European Commission, ECB and IMF.
