Police say a woman with serious injuries at an address in Trem y Garnedd, was taken to hospital shortly after 9am.

A man who is believed to have left the address earlier this morning was found nearby and arrested on suspicion of the woman’s murder.

We are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.

Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the woman and I’d ask their privacy be respected at this time and allow them to pass this dreadful news to extended family and friends.

I’d also like to pay tribute to the professionalism, speed and bravery of attending officers who were able to locate and arrest the suspect so quickly and my thanks to the local communities for their cooperation as this fast moving investigation unfolded.

North Wales Police have launched an investigation and we are asking anyone who was in the area of Trem Y Garnedd this morning and can assist the investigation to call Police on 101.
