The full list of North Wales roads still closed after Storm Dennis

North Wales is still reeling after bearing the brunt of two storms in the space of a week.

The region has been battered by gale force winds and torrential rain in recent days – with more rain set to fall later this week.

Emergency services and local authorities have been out in force across the patch to clear up the damage left behind by Storm Dennis, which hit on Saturday – mere days after Storm Ciara wreaked havoc.

However, several roads and buildings remain closed due to the weather.

Drivers are being urged to take extra care, and North Wales Police issued a warning to motorists to take heed of signs and not drive through roads closed by floodwater.

Below is the full list of closures and restrictions still currently in place.

Denbighshire Leisure Ltd have confirmed that the Nova centre’s play area in Prestatyn has been forced to close after wind damaged the roof above the play area.

A five-metre section of the roof directly above the play area was affected by the winds, and internal scaffolding will need to be put in place to reach the affected section of the roof and to carry out the repairs.

For health and safety reasons, the play area will need to remain closed until this work has been completed.
