AN ABANDONED car near Northop has caused long delays during rush hour.

One lane had been blocked on the A55 North Wales Expressway heading westbound from J33A Brookside (Northop Hall East) to J34 A494 (Ewloe).

Slow traffic is building in the area near the McDonald’s resturant due to the blockage causing motorists to meet a standstill on the expressway, according to traffic log INRIX.

Traffic Wales were called to investigate, according to social media posts, as it was unclear if the car has been involved in an incident.

It had been removed by officers at around 5.30pm, allowing delays to clear.
