David Nicholas Davies from Trefor, Caernarfon will appear before Caernarfon Magistrates tomorrow morning.

Despite an individual being charged with murder, increased police presence in the village will continue to provide reassurance and a point of contact for anyone to provide further information.

"Detectives from the Investigation Team will also continue to conduct enquiries locally and I’d reiterate my appeal that should anyone have any information that will help us fully understand the sequence of events that led to the discovery of Emma’s body, then I’d ask they contact Police.”

Steel giant Tata has halted plans to sell the huge site and is working on keeping its UK business as part of a joint venture with German conglomerate Thyssen Krupp.

Greg Clark, the new Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, visited the Port Talbot works yesterday and met workers and union officials.

I am encouraged that Greg Clark has met with steelworkers in his first week on the job. He will have left today in no doubt that Community will keep the pressure on this Government to keep their promises to protect the steel industry.The new Secretary of State clearly understands the scale of the challenge still facing the industry, but his words to steelworkers today must be followed by firm actions to help save their jobs. By visiting Port Talbot, he will have seen first-hand that the highly skilled workforce is the foundation on which any success for this industry will be built.
