Police are questioning a ninth person after the death of a 42-year-old man following an altercation with motorists near his home in Prestatyn.

Jonathan Sillett collapsed and died in Beach Road, on Saturday.

North Wales Police said a 20-year-old man has been released on bail pending further inquiries after being arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Eight other people have already been bailed after being questioned in connection with the death, say police.

Earlier this week Mr Sillett's family issued a statement calling him a "devoted family man", adding that he left a wife, Hayley, who is eight months pregnant, and a four-year-old daughter.

Senior investigating officer, Det Chf Insp Graham Talbot said: "I am aware that in recent days there has been mention of vehicles driving erratically and we did receive a call about this last Saturday night.

"I am, however, able to confirm that until this incident North Wales Police had not received any reports by the public of anti social behaviour involving vehicles in the area of Beach Road, Prestatyn, within the last 12 months."
