A suspected burglar was arrested after police rushed to the scene of a break-in.

Officers were called by a concerned neighbour to a shop in Outram Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, shortly after 4.15am this morning (Thursday).

After spotting a bike outside they heard loud banging coming from inside and entered the building.

A 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary. He remains in police custody.

Detective Sergeant Ian Holmes, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We were called by a concerned neighbour and arrived to find a suspect still inside the building. A police officer was very swiftly on the scene and was quickly able to detain a suspect.

“Burglaries are hugely damaging for local businesses, especially at this difficult time, so I am delighted that we were able to resolve this incident so quickly.”
