Police have renewed an appeal for information after a man died following a row with motorists near his home.

Jonathan Sillett, 42, collapsed and died on Beach Road, Prestatyn, on 21 July, leaving a pregnant wife and four-year-old daughter.

North Wales Police have made nine arrests: two on suspicion of murder and seven on suspicion of manslaughter. All have been bailed for further inquiries.

They want to speak to a teenager on a bike and a number of car drivers.

Det Sgt Dewi Jones said that they were very keen to speak to several people who were seen in the area at the time.

"We want to speak to a teenage youth who spoke to a female resident in the area about the incident, just after it had taken place," he said.

"This person, who was on a bicycle, is described as being white and aged about 15 years old.

"We are also trying to locate the driver of a red Vauxhall Corsa which was seen in the Beach Road East area about 9.30pm, the driver of a silver BMW which is described as having "angel eye" type modified headlights and we are seeking information about a black VW Golf which was seen in the area around the same time."

Mr Sillett, who also had a four-year-old daughter, was described after his death as a devoted family man.

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