A STRETCH of a busy main road in Flintshire was closed amid two crashes, police said.

North Wales Police said shortly before 2pm on Monday that the A550 between the Dobshill / Dirty Mile roundabout and the roundabout at Penmynydd A5118 / A5104 was closed.

A spokesperson said it was due to two collisions having taken place and they urged people to avoid the area.

Latest traffic reports state that the road has now reopened.
