A man has been arrested in connection with the theft of historic treasures worth more than £1m from Arundel Castle in West Sussex.

Among the items taken in May were a set of gold rosary beads carried by Mary, Queen of Scots to her execution in 1587.

Sussex Police have said a 45-year-old man was arrested in Eckington, Worcestershire, on Tuesday morning in a joint operation with Gloucestershire Constabulary, West Mercia Police and Thames Valley Police.

The suspect remains in custody for interview.
