Update: Railway lines between Shotton and Rhyl have reopened following a four-hour closure due to an incident.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called today, Tuesday 25 April, at approximately 4.17pm to reports of an incident near Shotton railway station.”

“We sent one rapid response vehicle, one emergency ambulance, and one Advanced Paramedic Practitioner to the scene.”

Earlier report: All rail lines between Shotton and Rhyl are currently blocked due to emergency services dealing with an incident.

An Avanti West Coast Line update states:

“Due to a person being hit by a train between Flint and Chester all lines are blocked.”

A large number of emergency vehicles including police, ambulance and fire service have been seen on the approach to Shotton Lower Level Station.

An air ambulance was spotted flying over Shotton at around 4.45pm but didn’t land and returned back to base.

The line closure is causing cancellations, delays, and revisions to train services running through these stations.

The disruption is expected to last until 18:15 today.

As a result of the ongoing incident, Transport for Wales says it is attempting to arrange alternative road transport for affected passengers.
