A suspected burglar was arrested by police after they followed footprints in the snow.

Officers were called when a homeowner saw a bicycle being stolen from a garage in Sutton, south London.

Police noticed footprints and followed them for several streets, before finding a man cowering under frozen foliage.

The officers then followed the trail back and discovered several other garages had been targeted.

A 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of burglary in the early hours of Friday and was released on bail pending further inquiries.
