Traffic Wales warned drivers to avoid a main route between Bala Lake and the coast at Barmouth after a crash.

The A494 was shut for four hours between Llanuwchllyn and Rhydymain - the main route between the lake and the coast at Barmouth - following a collision reported by the service just after 7.30am today.

A statement posted to social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, warned that the road was closed in both directions with diversions in place.

The road reopened shortly before 12 noon, more than four hours after the closure.
