“We continue to follow a number of lines of enquiry in this investigation and have made arrests with suspects being questioned today.

“We are still very much appealing for witnesses however, and I urge anyone who may have information which could assist us in investigating this very serious incident to come forwards.”

“In order to do this, we must have the support of our local communities and we need information, no matter how small it may seem to let us piece together what is happening and how we can prevent further incidents such as this.”
