Four arrests in Shotton letting agency Eazylet inquiry

Four people have been arrested as part of a police investigation into a Deeside letting agency.

Shotton-based Eazylet closed in October, reportedly leaving rent and deposits unpaid to landlords and tenants.

North Wales Police confirmed three men and a woman have been arrested and bailed pending further inquiries.

Five residential and two business premises have been searched.

Det Supt Kevin Bowden, who is leading the investigation, said: "This is a complex investigation and will take some time to conclude. Anyone with information should contact North Wales Police on 101."

Flintshire's trading standards department said it had received a number of inquiries from people with concerns about their deposits.
