Arrest over raid at John Caudwell's Staffordshire home

A third man has been arrested over a robbery at the home of Staffordshire businessman John Caudwell.

Thieves broke into the Broughton Hall home of the Phones4U founder on 1 November 2010 and hit him with a rod.

The men stole cash and jewellery, including a Chanel diamond watch, gold Breitling watch and diamond necklace.

Staffordshire Police said a 47-year-old man from Liverpool had been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary on Wednesday.

Two people were arrested and bailed in connection with the burglary last year.

Mr Caudwell, who was at home with his partner Claire Johnson and a female worker at the time of the burglary, was cut on his forehead and elbow when a group of men broke in.

Last year an insurance firm offered a £50,000 reward for information about the raid.
