A man charged with fraud following the alleged theft of a fish has been bailed by Guernsey's magistrates' court.

Matthew Andrew Clark, 29, stood accused of burglary and an offence of fraud by false representation after a stolen bass was entered in a competition.

It was claimed the fish was taken from St Peter Port's aquarium and then used to net an £800 prize in a local competition on 9 July.

Mr Clark was told to attend the magistrates' court again on 23 July.
