‘Girl, 15, killed, dad injured, and grandad taken hostage’ at holiday park

A teenager was arrested after a 15-year-old girl was allegedly stabbed to death, her dad injured and her grandad held hostage at a caravan park.

Police confirmed the teenager's tragic death soon after midday on Sunday, August 1, following calls to a domestic disturbance at Ty Mawr in Towyn, on Saturday afternoon.

A 19-year-old man has been arrested, with officers stating no further risk is posed to holidaymakers on the same site.

According to the force's Facebook post, the suspect has been detained in custody around seven miles away in St Asaph.

Officers confirmed the 19-year-old had been arrested in relation to the incident in which a teen girl was knifed to death and her dad seriously injured.

Her grandad was also understood to have been taken hostage in the "isolated" incident, the Sun reports.

The A548 in Towyn was closed to allow the air ambulance to land, sparking traffic delays in the area, but has since reopened, according to North Wales Live.

A spokesman for the site said: "We are shocked and saddened by this tragic incident.

"Ty Mawr is a 100-acre family park that welcomes tens of thousands of happy holidays makers every year. This was an isolated and unprecedented incident that took place inside a caravan that is now a crime scene.

"Our team are assisting police with their enquiries and as it is a police matter we can’t comment further at the moment."

The Welsh Ambulance Service (WAS) confirmed it had three rapid response vehicles, two emergency ambulances, and the air ambulance at the scene.

Detective Superintendent Mark Pierce said: "We would like to thank the staff and management of Ty Mawr, and members of the public both locally and those holidaying, for their support whilst we carry out our investigations.

"Our thoughts are with the family who is being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

"We urge anyone with information to contact us on 101."
