TWO people who were arrested on suspicion of the involvement of the murder of missing teenager Damien Nettles have this afternoon been released without charge.

A 36-year-old woman from Cowes and a 45-year-old man, also from Cowes, answered police bail earlier this afternoon and were questioned further by detectives from the Hampshire Major Investigation Team (HMIT).

It was deemed that there was insufficient evidence to charge them with any criminal offence.
