Police have arrested a woman in connection with a car crash that left a 20-year-old man dead.

Tom McCann died in a two vehicle collision on the A5052 between Four Crosses and Pentraeth Automotive, Anglesey at 22.22 GMT on 5 February.

North Wales Police described the woman as "local" and said she was being interviewed by officers.

Police appealed for witnesses to the incident to come forward.

A family tribute to Mr McCann said he was "always the life and soul".

His family said his death would leave a huge hole which would never be filled.

Mr McCann, who was known as 'Scouse', was born in Birkenhead and moved to Anglesey in July 2001.


"He has left a huge hole in our hearts that will never be filled," said his father Robert McCann.

"He was always the life and soul, fun loving, carefree and always there to cheer you up."

Mr McCann added he and his wife Lesley and daughter Cathryn wanted to thank family, friends, and colleagues for their support following his son's death.

Inspector Pete Nicholson urged anyone with information about the incident to get in touch.

Mr McCann was driving at the time of the crash. A boy and girl aged 16 in the same car were taken to hospital.

Two women, aged 40 and 27, in the second car suffered minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101 or 0845 6071002 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
