Police given more time to quiz murder suspect

Police investigating the death of two teenage girls who were killed in Gosport after being hit by a car have been given more time to question a 20-year-old man in custody.

Detectives now have until 00.25am on Thursday before a decision is made on whether to charge the suspect.

A Hampshire police spokesman said: "The courts have granted more time for detectives to continue questioning a 20-year-old man on suspicion of murder after a fatal road traffic collision in Gosport on Sunday, November 3, 2013.

"The suspect can now remain under arrest in police custody for interviewing until 12.25am on the morning of Thursday, November 7, 2013.
