Royal Marine Ciaran Maxwell has been detained in custody for another week.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “We have a warrant for a further detention from a court for seven days.”

The investigation is linked to the discovery of two dissident-related arsenals in woodland in Northern Ireland earlier this year.

Officers have returned to Carnfunnock Country Park near Larne, where they found bomb-making items in March.
