North Wales Police said the cause of the young woman's death is currently unknown and a young man is helping police with their enquiries.

Yesterday police officers sealed off the North Wales bed and breakfast as forensics teams carried out investigations.

Local councillor Alan Jones Evans said:

Our hearts go out for the family having this tragic news so early in the year. "It doesn't get much worse does it? Somebody is receiving terrible news today on what should be a happy time for celebrations.

"I think the news is breaking slowly through the community and there is shock and alarm."
