A MAN has been arrested for drink driving after a crash in Flintshire on Thursday morning.

Traffic was building on the A55 Eastbound from J33 Northop Road to J33A Brookside after a car left the carriageway.

Traffic reports show there was debris on the road and lane one (of two) had been closed.

A spokesman for the North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit confirmed one person has since been arrested.

They added: "With regards to the earlier Road Traffic Collision near Northop Hall early this Morning, We can confirm it was a single vehicle collision where one male has been arrested for drink driving after providing a roadside reading of 117mg of alcohol, the legal limit being 35!!

"The male has been treated for minor injuries at the Hospital. He has provided a sample of blood for analysis & he has been released under investigation pending these blood results.

"Apologies for the inconvenience caused this morning and we thank the morning commuters for their patience.

"Please do not drink and drive, the risks are just not worth it."

The accident has since been cleared and traffic has returned to normal.
