THE A55 in Flintshire has reopened after animals on the carriageway saw a temporary roadblock set up.

Traffic Wales issued advice about the roadblock shortly before 8.30am on Sunday (May 26), with a spokesman confirming: it was "due to animals on the road."

The block took effect in both directions at junction 36A Broughton Retail Park.

But at 8.40am, Traffic Wales announced the road had reopened.
