Ninth person arrested over Prestatyn death

North Wales Police have arrested another person on suspicion of manslaughter following the death of 42-year-old local Jonathan Sillett last Saturday in Prestatyn.

The 20-year-old man has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Graham Talbot, said this takes the total of people arrested in connection with the incident to nine.

I am aware that in recent days there has been mention of vehicles driving erratically and we did receive a call about this last Saturday night.

I am, however, able to confirm that until this incident North Wales Police had not received any reports by the public of anti-social behaviour involving vehicles in the area of Beach Road, Prestatyn, within the last 12 months.

Prestatyn is one of the safest and quietest areas in North Wales and the recent tragic event when Mr Sillett died would appear to be an isolated incident.
