Train lines between Rhyl and Chester are back open following this morning closure due to a ‘police incident’

There were reports of a person in a ‘precarious position’ on a bridge, a trained police negotiator was brought in to talk to a woman in an effort to bring her to a place of safety.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said:

“Officers from BTP and North Wales Police attended the line near Mostyn Road, Holywell, on Monday, 14 September, following reports of a person in a precarious position on a bridge.

“The incident was reported to BTP at 6.44am and all trains between Rhyl and Chester were put on stop. Colleagues from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service also attended.

“Shortly after 9.30am, officers, including trained negotiators, persuaded the woman down from the bridge and she was subsequently taken to a place of safety for a mental health assessment.”

Virgin Trains say:

All lines are back open but there are ‘residual delays’ to services through Flint.
