Guernsey Police have arrested two people in connection with the removal of the island's Holocaust memorial plaque.

The brass plaque commemorates three Jewish women who were deported from Guernsey during World War II to Auschwitz where they later died.

The male suspects have been interviewed and released on bail, police said.

Guernsey Police are still appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward to assist investigations.

The Channel Islands were the only part of British soil occupied by German troops during World War II.

The islands were invaded in June 1940 and liberated in May 1945.
