A coroner arrested on suspicion of fraud, theft and money laundering has had his bail extended a fourth time.

Gloucestershire coroner Alan Crickmore has now been bailed until 11 March 2013 while investigations continue, police said.

Mr Crickmore was suspended from duty in December 2010 when the Solicitors Regulation Authority began investigating his Cheltenham law firm.

The 56-year-old was arrested in January 2011.

A police inquiry is looking into alleged breaches of the solicitors' code of conduct and accounting rules.

His deputy David Dooley has taken over conducting inquests with the help of two assistants drafted in from other counties.
