A man arrested in connection with a string of catapult attacks has been rearrested.

The 23-year-old, free on bail pending further inquiries into the catapult attacks, was stopped in a car near Brighton Racecourse yesterday.

Police said he was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified.

He had been arrested on Friday in Rottingdean after the discovery of a catapult in the glove compartment of a car parked nearby.

Damage running into thousands of pounds was caused in an hour-long shooting spree on Wednesday.

Eight buses and seven cars in total were hit last week.
