>> Man arrested after six injured in fire at Three Crowns Inn, Bangor
La police a arrêté un homme d’une trentaine d’années soupçonné d’avoir mis le feu au bar « Three Crowns Inn » ce dimanche, quelques heures après l’entrée en vigueur du mariage homosexuel en Angleterre et au Pays de Galles.
5 victimes et deux policiers notamment ont été hospitalisées, suite aux inhalations de fumée, ainsi qu’un homme de 29 ans, qui a sauté du deuxième étage pour échapper aux flammes.
Selon le rapport de police, Jason Robertshaw souffre de graves brûlures et blessures internes, mais son état semble stabilisé.
On ignore s’il s’agit pour le moment d’un acte homophobe. L’enquête est en cours, et un appel à témoins a été lancé.

>> A man has been arrested after another man was seriously injured and five people needed hospital treatment following a fire at a pub in Gwynedd.
The man, in his thirties, was held on suspicion of arson after the blaze at the Three Crowns Inn in Well Street, Bangor, early on Sunday.
A 29-year-old man suffered serious injuries after jumping from the second floor window to escape.
Two police officers called to the scene were also treated at Ysbyty Gwynedd.
The seriously injured man, named by police as Jason Robertshaw, 29, from Bangor, suffered burns and internal injuries.
He has been flown to a Birmingham hospital, according to North Wales Fire and Rescue Service.
Fire crews from Bangor, Llanfairfechan and Beaumaris were called to the scene after the fire broke out at around 03:30 BST.
The Welsh Ambulance Service said it it took five people to Ysbyty Gwynedd for treatment for smoke inhalation.
Police described Mr Robertshaw’s condition as serious but stable.
The two police officers, who are believed to have been taken to hospital by colleagues, were also treated for smoke inhalation and were later released.
Police and fire investigators returned to the pub later on Sunday morning to establish the cause of the blaze.
Detectives say there is nothing to suggest that the pub was targeted because it is a gay venue.
A statement on the pub’s Facebook page says it will be closed until further notice « due to a very large fire in the early hours of this morning ».
Anyone with any information about the fire is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 quoting reference number R046195.
