I can confirm that today, Thursday 15th December, one further fatality has been confirmed at the Haut du Mont site on Pier Road.
The number of Islanders confirmed to have died in the blast is now nine.
The families have been made aware of this announcement before the public and media and continue to be supported by our specially trained Family Liaison Officers.
We believe there are no more residents that remain unaccounted for.
The search operation will continue until the site has been fully cleared.
The fatalities have not yet been formally identified. The Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) process will be carefully considered and managed in a dignified and compassionate way.
The thoughts of all of us at States of Jersey Police are with everyone affected, in particular those who lost loved ones in what has been a tragic incident for our Island and our community.
May I continue to ask that the privacy of the families is respected.
