A man has been arrested in connection with stealing a £70,000 motorhome.

On Monday, officers in Chorley arrested a 31-year-old after a number of vehicles, including the motorhome, were stolen from properties in Adlington. 

Following his arrest, several car keys were found, including a skeleton key, which could have been used to open a range of locks.

A spokesperson for the police said: "Officers from Chorley neighbourhood and task force teams have arrested a male, 31, from Farnworth in Greater Manchester in connection with thefts of motor vehicles, including a £70,000 motorhome, which occurred in Adlington.

"On arrest, numerous Ford car keys were recovered including a skeleton key which is used to open a range of locks.

"This is a great result by both teams and we will continue to target those who commit crime in our communities and act on information from the local community about illegal activity in our area.

"Remember to always keep your vehicles secure and keep your keys away from the front door.

"Consider investing in a steering lock, immobiliser or a tracking device."
