One man has been injured and a woman and child were forced to flee a flat after the entrance was deliberately set alight.

North Wales Police said the incident took place on Thursday evening at Llandudno, in Conwy county.

The flat was above a shop on Ffordd Las in the seaside town.

Police say they want to trace two men seen acting suspiciously in the area at about 23:00 BST.

"We are carrying out a joint investigation with North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and are treating this incident as arson," said Det Insp Chris Bell.

The woman and child in the property escaped uninjured, while a male occupant suffered minor burns and needed hospital treatment.
