A man climbed outside the building and escaped with a letter

A drunk man climbed a Liverpool monument and stole a letter from his ensign, police said.

Merseyside Police said he fled with a letter ‘L’ from the Philharmonic Hall and fled with others.

Officers were called at 5:45 am BST to a man “suspected of being drunk” who had climbed onto a ledge housing the sign.

An 18-year-old man from Giffnock, Scotland, and a 19-year-old man from Aigburth, Liverpool, have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.

Police said they searched the area and pursued a group of men, one in possession of the stolen goods.
