A man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill an Army cadet who was selling poppies outside a supermarket.

The boy was selling the poppies for Belper Royal British Legion when he was allegedly threatened outside the town's Co-op on Saturday.

Police said the man who made the threats walked away to a car in the store's car park and was driven away.

A 34-year-old man was still being interviewed by detectives, police said.
