In a statement by Wrexham AFC, a spokesperson said: "Wrexham AFC can confirm the 1864 Suite was evacuated during the third sitting of today’s Father’s Day meals at the Racecourse Ground.

"In the wake of the torrential rain that hit the region late this afternoon, some structural damage has resulted in a large leak inside the Macron Stand reception area.

"All diners were evacuated from the Suite on safety grounds, with the Fire & Rescue Services contacted. Everyone inside the stand at the time was successfully evacuated.

"All guests who were part of the third sitting will be contacted by the Club, and we share their disappointment that – after two successful sittings – circumstances beyond our control have disrupted our plans for the evening.

"We will assess the situation in the Macron Stand, to ensure we can get everything back up and running as soon as possible."

A yellow weather warning for thunderstorms is currently in place for Wales and England, and North Wales Police have said: "We are receiving numerous calls regarding flooding in the Wrexham area, some roads are currently impassable. We have alerted Highways, can you please take care on the roads and delay your journey if you can."
