Two men charged with Holyhead mans murder

Two men have been charged with the murder of a 58-year-old man from Holyhead.

David John Jones – known locally as DJ – died as a result of “extensive head injuries” in Royal Stoke University Hospital on Thursday, police said.

The two men, aged 47 and 38, both from Holyhead, will appear at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

North Wales Police is appealing for witnesses to an assault on Mr Jones on November 17 to come forward.

Officers have been granted a warrant of further detention at a special court in Mold for a woman also being held in connection with the death.

Det Ch Insp Brian Kearney said said: “Despite two individuals being charged, I would continue to appeal for any witnesses who saw the victim… between 10:00-11:00 GMT in Holyhead to come forward.

“Our thoughts remain with David’s family at this tragic time.”

Bike from Banksys Nottingham hula-hooping girl vanishes

A bicycle which formed part of Banksy’s hula-hooping girl artwork has gone missing.

The graffiti artist’s latest piece appeared on a residential street in Nottingham on 13 October.

It showed a girl hula-hooping with a tyre next to a bike missing its back wheel.

But the bicycle vanished from its post outside a beauty parlour in Rothesay Avenue over the weekend, which one visitor described as “such a shame”.

Resident Tracy Jayne found the artwork had been targeted when she went to visit it on Sunday morning.

“The artwork records an important part of Nottingham’s history, Raleigh bikes,” she said.

“My late husband worked for Raleigh until it closed in 2002. He died at age 48 in 2017.

“It’s such a shame that someone has stolen the bike. It’s sheer disrespect and saddens me very much. “

What happens when a Banksy appears?

Banksy’s work drew queues of sightseers when it was claimed by the artist’s Instagram feed and the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.

The council protected it with a transparent cover, but the artwork has been targeted with spray paint at least twice.

Both Nottinghamshire Police and Nottingham City Council said the removal of the bike had not been reported to them.

Banksy began spray-painting trains and walls in his home city of Bristol in the 1990s, and before long was leaving his artistic mark all over the world.
