A pensioner from St Helens has been arrested on suspicion of staging an armed robbery in Thatto Heath.

The 67-year-old was held yesterday evening (Wednesday) following a raid on the Santander bank on Thatto Heath last Thursday.

At the time, detectives were also linking the raid to an earlier armed raid on a bank in Prescot town centre.

The man, who has not been named, is currently being questioned at a Merseyside police station.
