Police Interview Youngsters Over Alleged Quay Damage
Police say they are no longer looking for anyone in connection with the alleged discharge of fire extinguishers at St Mary’s quay.
Officers have inspected harbour CCTV footage and four young people have been interviewed under caution with their parents present.
One of the youths was identified from distinctive fancy dress clothing worn during the New Year’s Eve incident.
Two of the young people, who voluntarily attended the police station, were local and two were visitors.
Sergeant Colin Taylor says he prioritised this investigation, as the harbourmaster’s decision to close the quay waiting room outside office hours would impact off-island travellers.
All four youngsters have been banned from the quay.
The Crown Prosecution Service will now decide whether criminal damage allegations will go to court.
