Following the death of constituent Gerald Corrigan who was shot with a crossbow outside his home on Good Friday, Ynys Môn MP Albert Owen has raised the matter in Parliament with the Prime Minister and is appealing to the public to contact the police in confidence with any information and said:
“On the weekend Mr Corrigan died of his injuries and my condolences are with his partner, family and friends.
The community is in shock at this fatal incident and I asked the Prime Minister to join me in appealing to the public if they have any information to contact the North Wales Police in confidence. I also pressed the UK Government to give assurances that the current laws on crossbows are kept under review and that the police has the adequate resources to carry out this murder investigation.
I welcomed the Prime Minister’s response and she supported my call for people to come forward if they have any information and I will take the matter of crossbow laws with the Home Secretary.”
