At one point it was taking over 20 minutes to travel a mile towards Broughton.

Traffic began to flow at around 1pm.

A spokesman for Flintshire County Council told us:

“Scottish Power have been working over the weekend to repair a damaged cable under an emergency notice. We were notified by a member of public that the temporary traffic signals were not working and causing congestion. The Utility were informed and the traffic management has since been removed.”

While @IanAHHH tweeted; “Its chaos here atm! Traffic from Saltney into broughton not moving :/
