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 were 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.

It remained in the air for more than an hour and a quarter performing a tight circuit over Sealand Manor, the A494 and Sandycroft.

There were also several reports of a wasp like ‘buzzing noise’ which may have also been a police drone in operation.

The dark coloured VW was seen being taken away on the back of a recovery lorry.
