A man has been arrested on suspicion of setting fire to Liverpool striker Andy Carroll's car.

The ex-Newcastle player was at the house of his then captain Kevin Nolan, in Ponteland, Northumberland, when his Range Rover was set alight in October.

Police said a man, 33, from Whitley Bay, was currently in police custody in connection with the incident.

On Monday Carroll, 22, scored his first goals for Liverpool, against Manchester City, after his £35m transfer.

Carroll moved from Newcastle to the Merseyside club in January.
