Two more people have been arrested in Holyhead in connection with the murder of a 58-year-old man.

The duo, a 38-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman, are being held at custody suites in North Wales.

Meanwhile, a 47-year-old local man, who was held on Tuesday night in connection with the incident, has now been re-arrested on suspicion of murder.  

DCI Brian Kearney, for North Wales Police, said: “Clearly our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the victim and we continue to request that their privacy is respected at this very tragic time.

“We fully appreciate the shock this has caused with our community and we are continuing to appeal to anyone who has any information to come forward.

“Early this morning, officers from the investigation team arrested a 38-year-old local man on suspicion of murder.

“A 44-year-old woman was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder, again in the Holyhead area.”
