The final two people missing following an explosion at a block of flats in Jersey have been identified.
The explosion destroyed the building in St Helier at around 4am on Saturday. So far, seven people have been confirmed as dead and two are missing.
Ken and Jane Ralph, aged 72 and 71 respectively, were named on Tuesday afternoon after the identities of seven others believed to be involved in the explosion were named on Monday.
The other seven people are Peter Bowler, 72, Raymond (Raymie) Brown, 71, Romeu and Louise De Almeida, 67 and 64, Derek and Sylvia Ellis, 61 and 73, and 63-year-old Billy Marsden.
During a press release earlier on Tuesday, Jersey Police chief Robin Smith said: “The families are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers.
“The fatalities have not yet been formally identified. The Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) process must be carefully considered and managed in a dignified and compassionate way.
“Therefore, we are not yet able to confirm if the fatalities that have been found at the site correspond to the seven identities released by the missing Islanders families yesterday afternoon.”
The Viscount’s Office has confirmed that inquests will only be opened once the DVI process has been fully completed.
