Tremadog deaths: Mother and son named as man is arrested

North Wales police have launched a major inquiry after the bodies of a woman and a child were found at a house

A mother and her young son who died at a house near Tremadog in Gwynedd have been named by friends and neighbours.

The bodies of Suzanne Jones and her son William, three, were discovered at the property on Friday evening.

North Wales Police were called to the house in Glanmorfa Terrace at 21:20 BST, and arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of murder.

Detectives say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Next of kin have been told and family members offered support.

Local minister the Reverend Christopher Prew said the whole community had been deeply shocked by what had happened.

"Our sympathies are with the family after this terrible event," he said

"We want to do as much as we can as a community to help them, and offer them as much support as possible," he added.

Neighbour Nicola Jones said: "It would be horrible wherever it happened, but it's especially sad here as it's such a quiet place. It's really upsetting."

Officers remain at the scene and the police say they are treating it as a major incident.

Police are asking anyone to contact them if they were near Glanmorfa Terrace on the evening of Friday 30 March, or may have any information about the incident.

Neighbours have laid flowers at the scene.
