A person is arrested in connection with the theft of Ben Hollioake's cricket kit, according to the late England batsman's brother.

An arrest has been made in connection with the theft of the late Ben Hollioake's cricket kit, according to his brother Adam Hollioake.

ODI shirts, Test helmets and bats were among a long list of stolen property following the raid of the Hollioake family home in Perth, Australia, on Tuesday.

Adam said on his Twitter account: "A person has been arrested & a search warrant issued to potentially retrieve remaining kit.

"Grateful to the robbers... at least when they realised sentimental value they made an effort to return stuff.

"You twits r legends!!! Kit turning up by the hour..probably 75% of it back now..No doubt in my mind that u guys instigated us gettin it back."

Melbourne-born Ben, who died at the age of 24 in a car crash 10 years ago, won 20 one-day international caps for England.
