  • Fire broke out at a former Indian take away on High Street Connah’s Quay last night at around 10.54pm.
  • Joint investigation with North Wales Fire and Rescue Service is underway at the empty building, which is currently being renovated.

Police have said extra patrols are being conducted in the area and they are working with council partners to reassure residents.

Inspector Ceri Hawe said;

“ I would like to reassure the community that this is an isolated incident and does not reflect the attitude of the local community. I would appeal to anyone with information to contact police on 101 or Crimesrtoppers on 0800 555 111.

Chief Executive of Flintshire County Council, Colin Everett, said;

We fully agree with North Wales Police that this is an isolated incident. The public should not be over concerned by any implications of a random act of criminal damage of this type.

“Deeside has a reputation for being a tolerant community and acts like this are out of character. We also appeal for any intelligence to help identify the perpetrators.”

Local councillor Andrew Dunbobbin said;

“I condemn this extreme, radical behaviour. It is not welcomed in Connah’s Quay and won’t be tolerated. I would ask anybody in the local community who has any knowledge regarding this incident to come forward, in confidence, to help find the culprits.

“We have already seen, through the recent Operation Crossbow, that by community involvement and all of us working together that criminals will be caught.”
