TRAFFIC is building on roads and carriageways across the Flintshire area due to a collision.

Reports have come in via social media of a crash between a motorbike and a car on Northop Road between Northop and Flint shortly before 5.30pm today.

The A5119 leading to Flint where the collision occurred has been closed, as well as the A55 northbound at junction 33 for Northop.

Reports of tailbacks on the A5119 in Northop have also been reported, as well as stand-still traffic near Paper Mill Lane, Oakenholt.

Motorists are diverting through Deeside Industrial Estate to avoid the rush hour gridlock.

A spokesman for the Ambulance Service said they have not been called to the scene.
