18-year-old Liam Simpson, died after being hit by a black BMW on Well Hill in Holywell on Saturday.

Two men, aged 28 and 21, are currently under arrest and being treated in hospital, while a 23-year-old woman is being questioned by detectives.

People from all walks of life are understandably disgusted by what has happened and it is quite clear to me that they want to help.

I am sincerely grateful to those who have come forward so far; they have undoubtedly helped us in reaching this point in the investigation.

Nevertheless, there is still a huge amount of work to do to make sure those responsible for Liam’s death, and the subsequent torturous ordeal his loved ones and friends are now suffering, are held fully accountable for what they have done.

– Det Chief Inspector Andrew Williams, North Wales Police

In a tribute to her son, Liam's mother said 'their lives will never be the same again'.

He had an amazing sense of humour and was loved by everyone that knew him. Our lives will never be the same again. Our hearts are broken.

Liam will be missed forever by everyone whose lives he has ever touched and anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.”

– Liam Simpson's mother
