The five boys on the French school trip on which the schoolgirl Caroline Dickinson was murdered were yesterday taken to a police station to give DNA samples, said a source close to the investigation. The youngsters arrived at the station in Launceston, Cornwall, Caroline's home town, in three unmarked vehicles and left two hours later.

The boys were in a 45-strong party of pupils and teachers from Launceston community college on a week-long trip to Brittany when the tragedy happened on 18 July. Caroline, 13, was raped and suffocated in a hostel in the town of Pleine-Fougeres. A Devon and Cornwall police source has said the boys were being treated as witnesses, not suspects. All the children on the trip will now be reinterviewed.
