According to local reports, an air ambulance landed close to the park on the A548 around 3.30pm, with the road shut in both directions.

North Wales Police confirmed today that a 15-year-old girl has died, and a 19-year-old man is in custody.

TEEN’S TRAGIC DEATH
A spokesman for Ty Mawr holiday park, which is part of the Parkdean Resorts brand, is assisting police in operations as the investigation continues into the incident.
He told the PA news agency in a statement: “We are shocked and saddened by this tragic incident.
“Ty Mawr is a 100 acre family park which welcomes tens of thousands of happy holidaymakers every year.
“This was an isolated and unprecedented incident which took place inside a caravan which is now a crime scene.
“Our team are assisting police with their enquiries and as it is a police matter we can’t comment further at the moment.”
