Police are continuing to examine CCTV footage, photographs from mobile phones, and information given by members of the public in response to their appeal for information into the murder of 22 year old Ffion Wyn Roberts.

Detective Superintendent Peter Chalinor, the Senior Investigating Officer, said: “We have in excess of 60 officers working on the investigation. House to house enquiries are continuing and we have a number of officers dedicated to reviewing CCTV footage.

“A number of people have also come forward with pictures taken in the public houses where Ffion was on the night of Friday, April 9, and the early hours of Saturday, April 10, and these are also being carefully reviewed. We have multiple lines of enquiries ongoing and we are continuing to receive excellent support from local people.”

Motorists will be stopped in Church Street, Porthmadog, tonight (Friday) and during the early hours of tomorrow morning to enable police officers to speak to drivers and their passengers who may have driven through the area on the morning of the murder and who may not realise that they saw something significant. A road block will be set up from 10 pm until 5 am.

Porthmadog continues to have an increased police presence and leaflets giving information on how to contact the police with information about the murder are being made widely available.
