Det Supt Gary Haskins, head of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: "Specialist officers are providing support to Mason's and Max's families and our thoughts remain with them this evening following this significant development.

"I'd like to remind both the media and the public that criminal proceedings are now active and the five people charged have a right to a fair trial.

"Posting speculation, footage and images on social media could jeopardise the forthcoming proceedings while it could also cause further upset to Mason's and Max's families."
