The police force investigating Twitter users who named the rape victim of Sheffield United and Wales striker Ched Evans have confirmed that arrests are imminent in the case.
 
While no one has yet been questioned, a spokesperson for the force said: "North Wales Police has confirmed that arrests will be made as part of its investigation following comments made on social media sites identifying the victim in the Ched Evans rape case.
 
"The Force is reminding people that the law gives rape victims and other victims of serious sexual offences, anonymity for life and that if anyone publishes a victim's identity they will be subject to investigation and possible criminal proceedings."
