Police in New Caledonia have opened an investigation into a fire which destroyed a boat belonging to the leader of the Labour Party, Louis Kotra-Uregei.

According to local media, the fire was discovered at the wharf around midnight.

Two months ago, a fire destroyed a pleasure boat belonging to Mr Kotra-Uregei, who at the time said he had no doubt it was the result of a crime.

Also a leading unionist, he said not everybody agreed with his ideas.
