Two directors have been arrested on suspicion of money laundering.

They were taken into custody from their home in Berkhamsted by HM Revenue and Customs and Herts and Beds police on Thursday.

The home and a Dunstable business have been searched, and the man, 46, and woman, 50, were bailed until December 13. Investigations are ongoing.
