RECENT flooding has caused subsidence to a riverbank at a popular country park.
Large trees and tree roots have fallen into the water at Alyn Waters Country Park after large part of riverbank was washed away on one side due to subsidence.
Mike Salathiel, 67, from Cefn-y-Bedd, said the problem was worse on the stretch of river near the car park at the Gwersyllt entrance.
Mr Salathiel said: “There is a large stretch of river there used by the fishing club. I accompanied one of their secretaries who was down there and it’s horrendous.
“The river has taken a big redirection and shifted the whole bank out with it.
“I would think at this particular section it’s very dangerous.
“Trees have gone in and one of the root systems there was the size of a van.
“It’s been caused by high levels of water in the river due to the bad weather we’ve had.”
A Wrexham Council spokesperson said: “The trees have been brought down by natural processes.
“They will be moved by contractors once water levels decrease.”
