A police car was flipped on to its roof by a gang of men in Merseyside.

Officers had left the car parked on Shevington's Lane, Kirkby, on Monday while they investigated a report of anti-social behaviour.

When they later returned to the car it was on its roof. The offenders ran off in the direction of the Moorfield estate.

A man, 19, was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage before being released while inquiries continue.

Police have asked for any witnesses to contact them.
