Five people who have been arrested in connection with the death of farmer Julian Gardner in October have been re-bailed.

A 31-year-old man from Ashford and a 39-year-old man from Chilmington have both been bailed until 2 June.

A 22-year-old man from Tunbridge Wells and an 18-year-old woman from Eastbourne have both been bailed until 9 June.

A 37-year-old man from Ashford has been bailed until 10 June.

Four men who were arrested earlier in the investigation have now been released without charge.

Julian Gardner was killed last October after apparently disturbing intruders at his farm near Robertsbridge.

Police believe Mr Gardner, 53, was attacked at Bush Barn Farm, near Robertsbridge, in the early hours of 11 October.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Gardner, who ran an agricultural and car repair business, suffered multiple injuries.
