Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has been released on bail after being arrested by police investigating claims of bribery and witness intimidation.

He was held with four other people as part of an investigation into the awarding of building contracts. It is understood the Labour Party has suspended Mr Anderson pending the outcome of the case.

Their year-long investigation, Operation Aloft, has focused on a number of property developers.

Police said they detained two other men, from Liverpool and Ainsdale, for the same offences. Two more, aged 25 and 72, were arrested on suspicion of witness intimidation.
