SCOTLAND YARD detectives and Antiguan police have made one arrest and found items belonging to the British crewmen and American couple killed last month aboard a yacht off the island of Barbuda, in the Caribbean.

Investigators said the discovery was a breakthrough in the investigation into the shooting of Ian Cridland, Thomas Williams and Bill and Kathy Cleever on board the Computacentre Challenger.

Antigua's daily newspaper, the Observer, said yesterday that the arrested man led police to where money, travellers checks and papers of the victims had been buried. Three other men are being sought.
