A BATCH of fireworks stolen in Staffordshire has been found at a storage unit near Berwick.

A Galashiels man has been arrested and is helping Staffordshire and Lothian and Borders Police with their enquiries.

The fireworks were found by police and trading standards officers after they received information from the Staffordshire force.

It is understood the fireworks had been due to be destroyed, using water followed by incineration.

But investigating officers believe that the thieves had intended to sell them on.

It has been stressed that nobody from the storage company where the fireworks were discovered is under investigation.
