Police and forensic scientists digging at the site of the Jersey Children's Home Murder Mystery, haven't yet found any further evidence of foul play, but have instead struck oil.

Police archaeologists, working through the night, had dug down to a depth of 140 metres, when, at around 6am this morning, a cry went up that 'black gold' had been struck, and a spout of oil shot more than 200 metres into the Jersey skyline, prompting cheers from locals.

US oil expert Red Adair would have been present at the site, but he died more than three years ago, supposedly of natural causes, though his body was never found.

Police are now treating his death as 'suspicious', and are carefully combing the site at the Haut de la Garenne for his rotting remains.

Police riggers quickly erected an oil platform over the well, and began drilling in earnest this afternoon. The oil strike is likely to make everyone on Jersey filthy rich, though it's thought that oil prices worldwide will remain largely unaffected.

No other discoveries have yet been discovered.
