Police: Jordan gave bag to friend before jumping from ferry

We know that there was a discussion between the group about something - we're still waiting for some people to come forward and clarify what went on - but we understand that for some reason Jordan has given his bag to a friend, he's jumped up on to the front of the ferry and then jumped into the water.

There is information in the public domain that suggests this is all a prank, that someone within Jordan's group has engaged with them in relation to a bet.

We do understand that the figure of about £100 has been discussed, but that hasn't been confirmed. That's one line of inquiry that we're keeping an open mind on.
