Statement from the Chief of Police, Robin Smith.

 As of 5pm today, Sunday 11 December, operations at the Haut du Mont site on Pier Road continue as a search and recovery.

Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) strategies are in place and specialist officers continue to survey the scene alongside Fire and Ambulance Services and tactical advisors from Urban Search and Rescue (USAR).

The number of Islanders confirmed to have been killed in the blast is now five. There are still a number of residents, we are working on the assumption of four, that remain unaccounted for. Their families were made aware of this announcement before other Islanders. They continue to be supported by special officers.

 Our equipment and K9s have identified several areas of focus where possible bodies may be located. We continue to search these locations.
