This morning specialist search team officers are carrying out a detailed search of a road and bridleway in the Connah’s Quay area for articles we believe integral to our investigation.

Despite one man having been charged and remanded in connection with the murder we are continuing to investigate and gather as much evidence as possible to help us build a full sequence of events.

To that end I’d like to reiterate our appeal for information from the local community to come forward and help us and Matthew’s family understand what happened.

Police were called to an address at Bethel Place shortly before 8pm on Monday, May 29 following reports of a serious incident.
