Police investigating the theft of a band's electric guitars and drum kit have arrested two men.

Noah and the Whale were playing a gig in Greater Manchester last month when a trailer containing items such as a Gibson Les Paul, a Fender Telecaster and a Ludwig drum kit was stolen.

One guitar amp and the trailer itself have since been recovered, and a 31-year-old and a 40-year-old man from the Salford area have been arrested by Greater Manchester Police on suspicion of theft.

However, police are still trying to track down the other missing items and have appealed to people in the area for assistance.

Detective Sergeant Simon Akker commented: "I would ask the public to help us find the outstanding musical equipment which is easily identifiable as much of the equipment is labelled with the band's name."

The band are continuing with their UK tour using borrowed equipment, but guitarist Charlie Fink admitted last week that the theft was "devastating".
