Just arrived home with the kids. Shaken. Not the regular journey to the train station we expected. Happily discussing the letters on foreign vehicle plates with my son, then faced with a vehicle driving towards us on the outside lane of the A55 at Llanddulas.

Already sat for almost an hour in tailbacks after a car reportedly drove wrong way Westbound along #A55 from Llanddulas. Not going anywhere for a while. Hope no serious injuries. pic.twitter.com/R6HEN33bHz
