North Wales Police say three people have been arrested as part of the investigation into the naming of the victim in the Ched Evans rape case on Twitter.
Evans was jailed for five years last week after being found guilty of raping the 20 year old woman at a hotel near Rhyl last May.
Two men have been arrested under Section 5 of the Sexual Offences Amendments Act and another has been arrested on suspicion of malicious communication.
All three men are being held at Sheffield police station where they are being interviewed by North Wales Police officers.
North Wales Police DCI Steve Williams said: “These arrests were made with the assistance of South Yorkshire Police and are part of a series of planned arrests we will be making during this on going investigation.”
Professional footballer, Ched Evans, has lodged an appeal against his conviction of rape.
