The 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving following a three-vehicle collision on the A494 in Llanferres.

An ambulance was called however, nobody was injured. The man currently remains in police custody.

A 31-year-old man was arrested just before 2am today on Bellevue Road in Wrexham after he failed the roadside drugs swipe test.

He has since been released on police bail pending further test results.

“Anyone who is considering driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs should know that we will be out and about waiting.

“North Wales Police are fully committed to help make the roads safer for all and will continue to target those who endanger their own lives and the lives of others.”
