A 40-year-old woman has appeared in court today accused of assisting a murder suspect by helping with the removal of a vehicle.

Susannah Buckley, of Belgrave Road, Colwyn Bay, was alleged to have helped Dean Cody last month at Colwyn Bay in north Wales.

Magistrates at Llandudno bailed her to appear at Mold Crown Court on March 6. She denies the allegation.

Cody, 30, is alleged to have stabbed 35-year-old David Kingsbury at Old Colwyn.

Badger rescued from Barry snare returned safe and well to the wild

A badger that had to be rescued by RSPCA Cymru after being found with a snare caught around her neck is now back in the wild after a spell in specialist care.

RSPCA Cymru found the badger in a Barry field trapped in a snare next to a fence. The snare was caught around her neck, and wounds were visible on the animal's body.

However, after a spell in specialist care, the badger has made a full recovery and has been safely returned back to the wild.

RSPCA Inspector Selina Chan, who undertook the initial rescue, said: “It's always fantastic to have a happy ending, and it's amazing that this badger is back where she belongs after this awful ordeal."

Had this incident not been reported to us, and had we not been able to complete this rescue, it is very possible this poor badger would have starved to death in horrible circumstances.

Fortunately, we were able to intervene as part of our on-going work to protect Wales' wildlife.

This incident highlighted the cruel and indiscriminate nature of snares - and, sadly, wildlife trapped in these devices are often not as lucky as this badger. RSPCA Cymru is opposed to the manufacture, sale and use of all snares and any trap which causes suffering.

North Wales Police says the family of a missing man from Colwyn Bay are growing 'increasingly concerned' about his disappearance.

Stephen Christopher Carson, 46, has not been seen since February 3. Police say enquiries to trace him have so far proved unsuccessful with officers making enquiries locally around Colwyn Bay and Rhyl where he was known to frequent as well as in Crewe, Cheshire where he originates from.

Stephen is about 5’ 8 tall, of medium build and bald. He also walks with a slight limp and often wears jeans and a hoody.

We are asking anyone who has seen Stephen or knows of his whereabouts to contact Police as we are all increasingly concerned for his welfare.

– PC Peter Colley, North Wales Police

Police are urging anyone with information to contact them on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
