Suspected burglar 'ran into sea in Rhyl to avoid police'

A man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary after he apparently ran into the sea at a Denbighshire seaside town to avoid police.

The 25-year-old was rescued from the water off Rhyl at around 03:00 GMT on Monday.

Rhyl inshore lifeboat was launched and the Rhyl coastguard rescue team was sent to the scene.

The man was treated for the symptoms of hypothermia and will be interviewed by officers later.
