Police have said "no other suspects are being sought" in bandstand arson

Kingsbridge and Salcombe Police officers say they have interviewed "three males and are content that, at this time, no other suspects are being sought". 

The Kingsbridge and Salcombe Neighbourhood Policing Team say they have "undertaken a number of enquiries as part of the investigation into the fire at the Bandstand on 22 January".

In a statement released on social media, the team said: "We have reviewed all of the CCTV available to us and are satisfied that we have a good understanding of what has happened and who is responsible.

"The next stage is for us to present the case to our partner agencies for an evidential review in order that the most proportionate and appropriate outcome is reached. The views of the town council and the community will be included in our report.

"Thanks again for all of the positive responses we have received as a result of our appeals for information."
