Police said they had made a "significant arrest" today following the 2014 cyber attacks on Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox systems.
An 18 year-old-man was arrested on suspicion of unauthorised access to computer material and officers from the National Cyber Crime Unit seized electronic and digital devices from the teenager's Boundary Street home in Southport.
Deputy Chief Constable Peter Goodman, national policing lead for cyber security, said: "This arrest demonstrates that we will pursue those who commit crime with the false perception they are protected within their own homes or hiding behind anonymous online personas."
