A red Dacia Logan MCV, believed to belong to the occupiers, can be seen parked outside the house.

What appears to be a pram with a rain shield can also be seen outside the bungalow.

As of Tuesday morning, the man has not been charged and remains in custody, with an update is expected later in the day.

Meanwhile, investigating officers are asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to call 101, quoting incident 135 of August 5.
