RUSH hour traffic is backing up on one of the main routes in Flintshire following an accident.

Traffic Wales have reported that one lane on the A494 eastbound, from Ewloe to Queensferry is closed.

A motorist who drove past the scene in the opposite direction contacted the Leader to say an ambulance and a police car were at the scene, close to the Queensferry turn-off.

He also said that traffic was already building up and was slow moving heading towards Mold also.
