'NUMEROUS' arrests have been made over recent weeks in a Flintshire town struck by several instances of anti-social behaviour.

North Wales Police say the incidents 'continue to be an issue' in Holywell.

Over the past few weeks, the force says it has received reports of youths causing issues at the Tesco store on Strand Walk, as well as playing loud music and lighting a fire near a tree.

Officers have also dealt with youths throwing stones at house doors in the town.

A police spokesperson added that a bus shelter had also been smashed in the area, but they were unsure at this moment in time whether this was down to anti social behaviour or the weather conditions brought on by Storm Arwen in November 2021.

Police say several arrests have been made as a result of the ongoing incidents.

The latest statement from NWP on anti-social behaviour in Holywell read: "ASB (Anti-Social Behaviour) continues to be an issue in Holywell Town Centre with numerous arrests being made over the last few weeks.

"We will continue to work with partner agencies and making further arrests in order to solve this matter. Some parents may not be aware of the trouble their child might be causing so we need to make them aware otherwise further arrests will be happening and potential evictions from their home."
