Elderly couple taken to hospital after being blown over in street

Two people - believed to be an elderly couple - were taken to hospital after being blown over in high winds as Storm Ali hit North Wales.

An eyewitness reported seeing blood on the pavement following the incident outside Barclays Bank in Llandudno this morning.

Two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene along with the police.

It looked like a nasty incident. I understand two people were blown down by the wind in Mostyn Street.

I saw the ambulance crew carry an oxygen cylinder, and there was sadly blood on the pavement. I hope they will be OK.

The wind was very bad. When I got into my car, it was rocking from side to side.

People were having trouble standing up and walking.

– Eyewitness

We were called at 11.45am.

Two people had fallen over due to the wind.

The ambulance attended the scene.
