Wales move to second in qualifying group

Wales have moved to second in the table in their Euro 2016 qualifying group after Belgium beat Israel one nil.

Belgium survived a red card to captain Vincent Kompany as Marouane Fellaini's early goal was enough to beat Israel in Jerusalem.

Fellaini finished well after Kompany's initial shot had been saved, with the Manchester City skipper sent off after the hour mark as he picked up a second yellow card for fouling Eran Zahavi.

That dismissal was a boost for Belgium's Group B rivals Wales, with Kompany now suspended for the game in Cardiff in June.

Last night's win took Belgium above Wales on goal difference and into top spot in the pool, though, with Fellaini scoring his third goal of the week to seal three points.

Wales were victorious over Israel on Saturday and play Belgium in the summer.

Police investigating an incident outside an ASDA store in Llandudno, where a boy was approached by a man, are continuing to appeal for witnesses.

It happened at around 8pm on Saturday March 28th, as the eight-year-old was leaving the store.

The man is described as around 50 years old, and thin. He was wearing a black baseball cap, black trousers and a black walking jacket.

Officers says the man, possibly accompanied by a second, approached the boy as he made his way from the store entrance to the car park.

After the incident the boy ran to the car where his grandfather was waiting for him and the matter was subsequently reported to police

We remain keen to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity at the time. A number of inquiries have been made, contact has been made with local businesses and residential properties in the area, CCTV footage is being viewed and I appeal to anyone who was in the area or who used the store at around the time to come forward and speak to us.

From our inquiries we believe that there were two separate groups of youngsters outside the store on their bikes at the time. We don't believe they are involved in any way, however it's possible that they may have seen something or have information which could assist us with our inquiries and we are therefore keen for them to get in touch. We understand that one of the groups approached the store on their bikes from the Oxford Road area.
