A murder investigation has been launched on Anglesey after a man died following an assault.

Between 10 and 11am on Tuesday, a 58-year-old man was attacked in the Thomas Street/Mount Pleasant area of Holyhead.

Police said the victim, who is believed to be well-know in the area, managed to walk the short distance down Thomas Street past the cenotaph to his partner’s address near Holborn Road.

He was taken by emergency ambulance to Ysbyty Gwynedd and transferred later that evening to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

Despite the best efforts of the medical teams he tragically died last night, with his family by his side.

Detectives from North Wales Police have set up an incident room at Llangefni Police Station to investigate.
