Joe Anderson, 62, was arrested by Merseyside Police alongside four other men as part of a police investigation into construction and development contracts in the city.

The 62-year-old is believed to be Anderson – who made headlines in October backing plans to place the city in a Level 3 lockdown.

Along with the 62-year-old, four others were also arrested, reports the Liverpool Echo.

A 72-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of intimidation of witnesses.

Two other men – aged 46 and 33 – were charged with conspiracy to bribe and intimidate witnesses.

The Labor politician has ruled the city since 2010 and has served as mayor since 2012.

Last year he won the Labor Party selection to run for mayor in the city for a third term in the delayed May elections.

A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council said: “Liverpool City Council is cooperating with Merseyside Police with their ongoing investigation. We do not comment on questions relating to individuals ”.
