The A5 at Druid has reopened this afternoon (Saturday, April 6) following a "serious" collision which closed the road for several hours.

The road was closed for 300 metres on the Corwen side of the junction with the A494.

The collision, which took place sometime before 10.40am, resulted in downed cables which forced North Wales Police to close the carriageway.

North Wales Police advised drivers to use other routes.

At 2.20pm, Traffic Wales shared on social media that the road had reopened.

It had earlier reported that the road was closed "due to serious collision" and that police were at the scene. Motorists were advised to travel via the B4401 at Cynwyd.
