North Wales Police have been given a further 24 hours to question two men on suspicion of the murder of a Hungarian delivery driver in Denbighshire.

Gabor Peter Sarkozi, 38, was attacked near the Chinese takeaway where he worked in Meliden on Tuesday night and died at Glan Clwyd Hospital.

An inquest has been opened and adjourned by the assistant coroner.

Police, who are still trying to find the motive, have until 22:15 BST on Saturday to question the two men.

They appeared before magistrates at Llandudno on Friday evening.

Mr Sarkozi, who lived in Rhyl and was known locally as 'Gabby', had been working for the Happy Garden takeaway on Tuesday evening.

Enquiries continue

Police are appealing for help to trace any witnesses who may have seen an assault in Ffordd Talargoch, Meliden, between 22:00 BST and 22:45 on Tuesday 18 October.

Detectives also want to speak to anyone who may have seen two men wearing hooded tops on Ffordd Talargoch or on the Dyserth Road leading towards Rhyl between 22:00 BST and 23:35 BST.

A row of properties, including the takeaway, were cordoned off on Wednesday as forensic experts examined the scene. Officers are still awaiting the results.

Extensive house-to-house inquiries are taking place in and around the village and searches of the area are continuing.

Witnesses can also call 101, 0845 6071001 (Welsh language), 0845 6071002 (English), or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
