Police in Wales have arrested a man in connection with a stabbing on the north Wales motorway that killed a man.

Officers from the Met Police’s anti-terrorism unit arrested a 47-year-old man on Monday evening in Bridgend.

He was taken to hospital for treatment after being stabbed in the chest.

He was later released.

The attack happened on the A10 in Bridgelands westbound at around 6:30pm.

The victim was a 54-yearold man who was driving the white media console on the motorway when he was approached by a man who tried to stab him.

He managed to pull the attacker away from the vehicle, before he was arrested and taken to a police station for questioning.

It is not known if the man is in custody or if he has any prior convictions.

A woman who was travelling in the same car as the man was also treated at the scene by paramedics, the police said.

The driver of the white Media console, a 55-year old man, was not injured.
