Unsecured doors on a lorry resulted in a load of sheet metal strips spilling out onto the A548 near Deeside Industrial Estate. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The incident happened around 5pm on Monday afternoon. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police closed the road between zone 3 and zone 4 of the Industrial Estate for a short amount of time while they cleared the eastbound carriageway of metal and debris. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A North Wales Roads Police Officer said on twitter: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This is the net result of not checking the doors are secure on your wagon before you set off. A548 Driver issued a Traffic Offence Report” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

One person on Facebook said three cars had been damaged due to the debris in the road and another suffered a blowout further along the carriageway. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The road reopened at around 5.45pm. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
