Nine arrests have been made by Guernsey Police in connection with the fire at the Idlerocks Hotel on Sunday.

Det Ch Insp Ruari Hardy said they had all been interviewed before being released on police bail.

He said inquiries were continuing into the fire, which was being treated as suspicious.

The disused hotel has fallen into disrepair since a fire in 2003, which started in the kitchen, caused two thirds of the roof to collapse.

Det Ch Insp Hardy asked any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
