Former Co-op Bank chairman Paul Flowers has been released on bail after being arrested in Merseyside in connection with a "drugs supply investigation".
Mr Flowers, a Methodist minister, was suspended by the church and the Labour party following allegations that he had bought and used illegal drugs.
