This morning's flooding latest ...

A press statement on the flooding from North Wales Fire & Rescue Service this morning says:

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service has been attending flooding incidents this morning (15th May) - mainly involving surface water with no homes or buildings seriously affected.

Wrexham is the most affected area, although flood alerts issued by Natural Resources Wales / Environment Agency Wales also exist in other areas.

In Froncysyllte near Llangollen, the A5 has suffered significant flooding and is impassable to cars. At 7.11hours this morning a fire appliance from Llangollen was mobilised so that firefighters could help to push a car and its driver from floodwater to safety.
