Gardaí in Co Cavan arrested two people, a man and a woman, in relation to alleged fraud offences and suspected theft of farm equipment.

"The two have since been released without charge and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions," a Garda spokesperson has said.

Investigations are ongoing.
