Most roads in north Wales now 'passable'

North Wales Police say that most roads in the area are now passable, but some of the estates in Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire remain impassable as do the roads to the remote rural properties.

Chief Inspector Dave Roome of North Wales Police has asked people to 'consider their neighbours' during the cold spell.

There are some isolated pockets and we are advising people to plan ahead given the forecast. People should conserve food and look at energy supplies, we would ask people to make an assessment of their vulnerability and preparedness due to the uncertainty of the weather.

– Alistair Read, North Wales Mountain Rescue Association
