Additional police resources were deployed to Alderney in order to carry out the investigation.

'Our team of officers are continuing their inquiries into this investigation, and additional resources remain in Alderney to carry this out,' he said.

The public had been reassured that this was just for 'necessary work' and Police were not looking for any further suspects, nor was there a wider risk to the community.
