Comical Ali, the Iraqi Information Minister famous for his outrageous claims, has been arrested in Baghdad, according to reports.

Saddam Hussein's spin doctor, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, has been in hiding in a relative's house since April.

US troops set up a road block in the Baghdad suburb and caught him in a car on Monday night, reports the Daily Mirror.

Al-Sahaf - who claimed the Iraqis were winning as Baghdad fell to Coalition forces - gave himself up without a fuss.

It was thought he may have killed himself when he disappeared on the day the Iraqi regime collapsed, still declaring Saddam would prevail.

After his arrest, he was allowed to return home to collect personal items before being taken away by American forces for questioning.

Relatives said al-Sahaf has been in a state of shock since the regime collapsed.

He was the last member of Saddam's Ba'ath party to abandon his post, giving his final briefing on the morning the tyrant's statue was toppled in the capital.

In it, he said: "There is no presence of American infidels in Baghdad. They are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks."

As he spoke, American troops and tanks could be seen pouring into the city.

Perhaps a future Chancellor of the Exchequer with statements such as the economy is fundamentally sound or we have no intention of leaving the exchange rate mechanism.
It must all have been a great shock to him ?
