Police investigating the Canterbury bomb hoaxes have revealed today they've released the man and woman arrested on Friday (4th November) without charge.

The 52-year-old and 41-year-old had been taken in by police following a renewed appeal for information about the hoaxes, which took place on Friday 26th August.

Detective Chief Inspector Tom Richards, who's heading up the investigation, has said he wants to thank the public for their positive response: 'We have a number of new lines of inquiry which are taking this investigation forward, and my team is working hard following up all the new leads and investigative opportunities we now have.'

'I would still encourage anyone who thinks they have any information which could help the investigation to get in touch, no matter how small or insignificant they think it could be.

'So if you can help please call the incident room on 01303 289600 or Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.'
