An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a Holywell man in a pool at a park in Flintshire.

A post mortem examination was carried out on Jason Owens, 43, on Monday, but the cause of death was been deferred until the full inquest.

Emergency services were called to the 70 acre Greenfield Valley Heritage Park, Holywell, on Saturday afternoon.

North Wales Police said his body was recovered later by an underwater search unit.

The park is owned by Flintshire council and managed by the Greenfield Valley Trust Ltd, which offered its "deepest sympathy" to the family of Mr Owens.

In a statement on Sunday, it said: "The first thoughts of the Greenfield Valley Trustees and staff, together with the communities of Greenfield and Holywell, are to extend its deepest sympathy to the gentleman's family and friends at this most difficult time."
