An eighth person, arrested in connection with the killing of two Somali teenagers in Buckinghamshire, has been released on bail.

Mohamed Abdi Farah, 19, and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were shot on the Fishermead estate in Milton Keynes on 26 May.

The man, arrested in Milton Keynes on Tuesday, has been bailed to 4 July.

Six men, one aged 19, four in their 20s and one aged 31, and a 13-year-old boy have already been released on bail in connection with the deaths.

Both victims were from the Somali community and were known to police for low-level criminal activity.

Thames Valley Police said that officers had taken nearly 200 statements and collected more than 350 exhibits as part of their investigation.

The force said officers were watching seized CCTV footage and the victims' families were being kept updated with the progress of the inquiry.
