Prestatyn fire deaths: police appeal for phone footage

North Wales Police have made a renewed appeal for members of the public to come forward with information on the fire that killed four people in Prestatyn on Friday night.

I am particularly eager to hear from anyone who was in Maes y Groes after the fire had started to possibly offer assistance and may have filmed the scene on their mobile phone or other electronic device.

I understand that some individuals who my have filmed the scene could not have imagined the tragic outcome may feel guilty about their actions but the footage could contain a vital piece of information and so I’d urge them to come forward.

Detectives will treat any approaches from members of the public who may have filmed the scene with sensitivity and understanding.

– Detective Superintendent John Chapman, North Wales Police
