POLICE have confirmed that the bodies of two men found on a beach on Anglesey last week may be connected to a separate incident.

At 11.43am on Friday, February 9, Police were called to the scene at Malltraeth beach and made the discovery of the two bodies of men who they say were "not from the north Wales area".

Police have since confirmed that the incident may be connected to another discovery made at Y Felinheli beach just two days earlier.

Forensics on the scene that day discovered "human remains" which were later confirmed to be an individual's foot.

It is not yet known whether or not the two incidents are definitely related, but Police believe that there is a strong possibility that that is the case.

Detective Inspector Gerwyn Thomas at Caernarfon CID said: “Sadly, we believe this incident may be linked to the discovery of the human foot on Felinheli beach earlier this week.

“We have established the identities of the two men sadly found on the beach at Malltraeth on Anglesey and we are now in the process of contacting their next of kin."

“The deaths of the two men in question are currently being treated as unexplained as we try to establish the circumstances surrounding them."

Formal identification of the bodies is yet to take place and the HM Coroner for North West Wales has been informed.
