The Gloucestershire coroner has had his bail extended until 17 July after he was arrested on suspicion of fraud, theft and money laundering.

Alan Crickmore was suspended from duty in December 2010 when the Solicitors Regulation Authority began investigating his Cheltenham law firm.

A police inquiry is looking into alleged breaches of the solicitors' code of conduct and accounting rules.

Allegations of dishonesty against Mr Crickmore are also being checked.
