Further arrests have been made in a probe into a robbery in which a mum and her two young sons were tied up as a gang stole firearms.

Detectives from Preston CID today revealed they have now quizzed and bailed two Preston men aged 24 and 25, two Liverpool men aged 24 and 23 and a Preston woman, 28.

Four men burst into a semi-detached house on Halfpenny Lane in Longridge, near Preston, on February 11 and threatened the woman and her two boys, aged eight and 10.

They tied the frightened family up with dressing gown cords before stealing guns and ammunition.
