A man has been arrested and another hospitalised after a 'family feud' in Rhyl on Friday morning.

North Wales Police say the incident in Sandringham Avenue involved the use of a weapon.

An incident between two family members was reported to North Wales Police this morning, where a male had received an injury requiring medical treatment. A second man was detained soon after and remains in custody whilst enquires are being progressed.

It is a concern that the incident involved the use of a weapon, which had been obtained from with their home address.

This appears to have been a family feud which resulted in one man receiving an injury to his arm. I would like thank those members of the community who provided assistance to the injured man and for their support today.
