A ROAD closure has been forced by a wagon on fire near Llandegla.

The A525 has been closed due to a wagon that is 'well alight' near One Planet Adventure in Llandegla.

Eyewitness Siân Griffiths-Phnx said: "We were traveling along the A525 towards Wrexham when we spotted black smoke on the road ahead. As we approached the turning for One Planet Adventure, we saw that a large wagon had gone on fire.

"No fire crews were there yet but lots of people in the lay-by were on their phones.

"Having two children in the back of our car, we decided it would be safest to turn around and take an alternate route."

One fire crew is now in attendance.

A spokesperson for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: "We have a crew from Wrexham in attendance at a fire on the A525 near Llandegla.

"Two breathing apparatus, two hosereels and a hydrant are being used.

"The road has been closed."
