One man is dead and another has been arrested after an attack at a pub in Anglesey.

Officers were called to the Blossoms Pub in Holyhead at 4pm on Friday (12 December) afternoon following reports that a 24-year-old man had assaulted a 46-year-old man in the pub.

The suspect scaled the roof of the pub and made his way on to the roof of the nearby Holland Inn, in an apparent bid to flee the scene. After negotiations, he was arrested.

The town centre was sealed off after emergency services were called to the Holborn Road area of the town and nearby businesses were ordered by police to close.

Ambulance staff were unable to resuscitate the 46-year-old found at the scene. He died soon after the incident.

Describing the scene, Carol Roberts, who works at Roberts Newsagents, said: "A police officer is asking us not to go out. No cars [are] going up and down the road. I can hear the police helicopter, never seen so many police cars and policemen."

North Wales Police said the suspect was detained after negotiations and is currently being held in custody while an investigation begins.

Superintendent Andy Jenks-Gilbert said: "The investigation is at a very early stage but I would like to take this opportunity to reassure the public that there is no danger to local residents."

Police are now appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with information should contact North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
