A 49-year-old Wrexham man has been sentenced to 14 weeks in prison after shouting obscenities during a minute silence being held at a vigil for the Manchester bombings.

Steven Barry Ellis was arrested at the vigil in Wrexham on Friday night.

He appeared before Wrexham magistrates court on Saturday and was sentenced immediately.

The immediate sentencing of this man demonstrates that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated in North Wales.
