A man has been arrested in Amsterdam on suspicion of murdering a Liverpool businessman two years ago.

Jason Osu, 31, was shot seven times in November 2012 in Beauclair Drive, Wavertree, and died seven days later.

Dutch police arrested a 49-year-old man from Sefton, Merseyside, in Amsterdam on Thursday afternoon.

Three men have already been handed life sentences for the "brutal" killing of the currency trader and trained pilot, in the driveway of his home.

The new arrest was made following an investigation involving detectives from Merseyside Police.

The man is being questioned on suspicion of murdering Mr Osu, the attempted murder of Darren Alcock, and conspiracy to possess firearms with intent to cause fear of violence.

In April, Paul Croxton, 21, of no fixed address, George McGovern, 54, and Thomas White, 29, both from Sefton, were jailed after being found guilty at Liverpool Crown Court.

Croxton was also jailed for sixteen years, to be served concurrently, for the attempted murder of Darren Alcock, a friend of Mr Osu, on 4 April 2013.
