Safety fears have resulted in the 40 ballroom dancers aged between 60 and 85 being told “strictly no dancing” and banned from the Trinity Centre for the elderly at Llandudno.

Today the centre’s management committee, which includes a number of local councillors, were branded “killjoys” by a dance organiser.

But the committee said the dancers were putting accelerants on the floor which helped them glide around and this made it dangerous for other users.

The dancers deny doing this.

While there had been no accidents, the committee chairwoman said the floor had to be re-polished afterwards.

An 80-year-old man has sustained "serious life threatening injuries" after a collision in Llandudno last night.

Emergency services were called to Nevill Crescent shortly after 10pm after reports that an elderly man had been in a collision with a vehicle.

The elderly man was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor but has since been transferred to a hospital in Stoke-on-Trent.

Police are appealing to anybody who may have been in the area at the time to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 101 and quote S188180.
