Derby Christmas lights theft: Second man arrested

A second man has been arrested in connection with the theft of Derby's Christmas lights.

Thieves broke into a compound at Markeaton Park on 9 November, taking lights, equipment and a cherrypicker.

The 26-year-old, from Derby, has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and stealing a vehicle. He was released on bail pending further inquiries.

A 28-year-old man previously arrested over the theft remains on bail. Police have appealed for information.

The cherrypicker was recovered at the junction of Leaper Street and Watson Street a few days after the break-in.

Derby's switch-on ceremony went ahead after the city council organised replacement lights.
