UPDATE: Police have said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident which left a 55 year old man with ‘self inflicted’ injuries.

The air ambulance landed just before 5pm in Connah’s Quay, and left at 5:50pm. The helicopter arrived at the Royal Stoke University Hospital’s major trauma centre at 6:08pm.

In police activity that is believed to be related to the air ambulance attendance, multiple units have been seen in and around River View off Bryn Road.

The air ambulance has landed on the grounds of Golftyn Primary School, with police conducting investigations at a single property on River View.

A North Wales Police spokesperson has said;

At 4.30pm today officers attended an address in Connah’s Quay at the request of the ambulance service, a 55-year-old male was taken to hospital with injuries believed to be self-inflicted.

Police are not looking to speak to anyone else in relation to the incident.

Connah’s Quay Councillor Andy Dunbobbin told Deeside.com he saw the Air Ambulance about to land near Golftyn Primary school and quickly made his way to the scene fearing children may be involved in an accident.

Cllr Dunbobbin said:

I later discovered, after talking to a number of people there, it seemed to be a possible knife related incident because a large blade was seen in an evidence tube.

This is very disturbing and has made residents in the area feel vulnerable.

The police presence and the immediacy that the emergency services have shown is to be applauded. However I would welcome more of a police patrol in this area till people feel more at ease.

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said;

We were called at about 4.25pm on Monday to reports of an incident at an address on River View, Connah’s Quay.

We sent a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a crew in an emergency ambulance and the Wales Air Ambulance and a man was airlifted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
