Four men were arrested early this morning after an alleged break-in at a Flintshire service station.

Police say Rhydymwyn Service Station near Mold was broken into just before 4am and a quantity of alcohol and cigarettes were stolen.

The suspects made off in a Black Golf GTI which was tracked to East Green in Sealand Manor where four men were taken into custody.

The men are all in their twenties and from the Merseyside area police have said.

Residents living around Sealand and Sandycroft were woken by the Hawarden based police helicopter which was brought in to assist officers on the ground.

The helicopter was spotted at around 4.30am searching close to the River Dee at Sealand.
