Just before 3.50am on Friday 18 August officers received a report of two burglaries at restaurants on Lord Street and Stanley Street.

Officers found and arrested two men aged 27 and 46 from Southport on suspicion of burglary later that morning.

They were taken to a police station in Merseyside where they were later released under investigation.

A 27-year-old man from Southport has now been rearrested today on suspicion of several business burglaries after officers detained him at an address in the area. He currently remains in police custody.
