North Wales Police have said there is 'no risk' to the public, as they deal with reports of a man 'acting aggressively' near a school in Flint.
Officers were called to Maes Alaw just after 7am today following the reports, which has led to the closure of St Mary's Primary School.
We have trained negotiators at the scene who are working to resolve the situation.
We have evacuated neighbours and closed the road to make it easier for us to engage with the individual.
However, I would like to stress that there is no danger to the wider public or pupils at nearby schools.
There are no other members of the public involved in this incident.
I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding as we continue our efforts to bring the matter to a successful conclusion and we will continue to keep the public updated.
