According to the police 'It's an ongoing incident and has been since 1145pm last night.'

They won't say anymore but it is not an incident to cause public alarm.

Police and Coastguard here at 4.30 am including walking on the shore outside the house - again tight lipped!

Not good news for somebody!

For the benefit of someone currently on holiday, can you please tell me who has died. Very sorry to hear this and worried about who it can be. Thanks in advance.

Administrator - surely the whole island must know the identity by now.
There does not seem to be any useful purpose to be served by keeping this secret.
