M42 robbery: Third man held over kidnapping

A third man has been arrested in connection with a kidnapping and robbery at a motorway services in north Worcestershire.

Last month, a number of men bundled a lorry driver into another vehicle at Hopwood Service Station on the M42, and stole the lorry containing cash.

A 34-year-old was arrested on Thursday in Kidderminster on suspicion of robbery and kidnap, officers said.

Two men from Birmingham have already been charged over the incident.

Leon Bell, 37, from Greenvale Avenue, Sheldon, and 49-year-old John Gerard Wall, of Bromford Lane, Washwood Heath, were remanded in custody to appear before Worcester Crown Court in November.

They were charged with robbing and kidnapping the driver of the lorry.

The kidnapped driver was not injured, a spokesperson added.
