Police issue statement after concerns over ‘strange’ letter sent to Bangor residents

North Wales news and information

Police have issued a statement after a “strange” letter was sent to a large number of residents in Bangor.

According to reports, the letter was delivered to addresses in the Upper Bangor area during the early hours of Monday morning (April 8th).

The letter was described as “very weird” by some who received it, while others said it had left them concerned for their safety.

People posting on a local community Facebook group said it made reference to “the Rapture” or second coming of Christ.

It follows wild conspiracy theories that this week’s solar eclipse would trigger the end of the world.

North Wales Police have now moved to reassure residents with extra patrols in the area.

The force said: “We’d like to reassure the local community that we do not believe there to be any cause for concern, and that no action is needed if you received the letter.

“However, there will be an increased police presence in the area whilst we make further enquiries. Please don’t hesitate to speak with an officer if you see them in your area.

“If anyone has information that could assist our enquiries, please contact us via our website or by calling 101, quoting reference Q048582.”
