An 18-year-old man has been arrested in a joint British and FBI-led operation following cyber attacks on Sony PlayStation and Xbox systems last year.

The teenager was held today in Southport on suspicion of unauthorised access to computer material.

He was also detained for alleged unauthorised access with intent to commit further offences and threats to kill, the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) said.
