Almost a full decade after her death, Mauritian police have officially closed the latest probe into the murder of Michaela McAreavey and are no closer to bringing her killers to justice.

A new investigation into the killing, announced in August, has found no new evidence to warrant a new trial or a retrial before a jury, the Mauritian Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) told the Irish ­Independent.
