The owner of a number of trees that fell across a busy road in Wrexham said he was thankful nobody was hurt.

Storm Ali hit the town hard on Wednesday with a number of fallen roadside trees strewn across carriageways.

A number of trees fell on Old Mold Road in Gwersyllt.

Stewart Jones, owner of the trees, said: "The main thing is thank goodness nobody was hurt. This is a busy road."

There was chaos caused when a significant part of a tree fell into Plas Coch Road, by the retail park, while several other trees came down across the county, including in Brymbo, where the road leading to Lamberton Drive was blocked.

Resident Stephen Cocoran said he 'heard a loud crack and bang', then called the police and went out to help traffic.

Cllr David A Bithell, Wrexham Council’s lead member for environment and transport, said on Wednesday: “We have a number of crews working throughout the county borough to deal with incidents caused by high winds, with supervisors at the environment department co-ordinating their work.

“While the high winds are only expected to last for today, I’d advise for motorists to take care, especially when travelling on tree-lined roads.”
