A 15-year-old boy looking for a party ended up being arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Police said they were called out to a property on Richmond Avenue in Morecambe at 6.35am on New Year’s Day after a neighbour reported hearing noises from an empty house.

The boy was arrested but later released without charge.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service attended because there was scaffolding at the house, which the boy may have climbed up on.
