The family of a 44-year-old man found dead in Llandudno has paid tribute to him calling him a "fantastic daddy".

Barry Roberts's body was discovered on a site behind Llwynon Road at 00:37 GMT on Tuesday. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The father-of-one, from Great Orme, Llandudno, was described as a loving father and devoted son.

North Wales Police said an inquiry into Mr Roberts's death was taking place and would be referred to the coroner.

'Beloved daughter'

"Barry was a loving father to his beloved eight-year-old daughter Melissa," the family's statement said.

"Barry was a larger than life, popular character who had an extremely positive outlook on life and many longstanding friends."

Mr Roberts was a keen Liverpool football fan and enjoyed socialising at the local ski slope, said his family.

"Barry was a fantastic daddy who loved nothing more than just spending time with his beautiful daughter," the statement added.

"Barry will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him but will never be forgotten."
