Police investigating a suspected hit and run incident on Anglesey which resulted in a man’s death have issued a further witness appeal.

Tributes were paid to Stuart Farnell from Stockport after he was found unresponsive at the roadside on the A5025 between Valley and Llanynghenedl on Friday night.

A local man was arrested in relation to the incident after making himself known to officers.

He has now been bailed pending further investigations as police are looking to speak to anyone who may have spotted a van with a damaged windscreen driving in the area.

Sergeant Meurig Jones of the Roads Policing Unit said: “Our heartfelt condolences remain with the family and friends of Stuart Farnell at this incredibly difficult time.

“Further to our media appeal that was issued on Saturday 20th February in relation to the fatal road traffic collision that was reported to us shortly after 11pm on Friday the 19th February, on the A5025 between Valley and Llanynghenedl; we are now appealing for anyone who may have seen a white Ford Transit pick up type vehicle travelling in the north Anglesey area, in particular along the A5025 corridor between Valley and Amlwch or the nearby villages between the times of 20:30-22:30 on Friday 19th February to contact us.

“We are particularly interested in speaking with anyone who may have seen such a vehicle with significant damage to its windscreen area, or who may have seen this type of vehicle parked up or stopped somewhere between the said times.

“The 46-year-old man who was arrested in connection with this incident has since been released under investigation and our enquiries are ongoing, including the examination of his vehicle which was seized.”
