A TEENAGER was injured when a sign from a Bangor store crashed onto a row of cars.

Customers were stunned when the sign at B&M on St David's Retail Park plunged onto five parked cars at around 3.15pm today (Monday, November 26).

One customer, who asked not to be named, said: "I went in for something to eat, and I was paying at the till, and all I heard was this big crash and this thing smacked down onto the cars.

"There was quite a shocked atmosphere. Everyone was traumatised by what they've seen."

A North Wales Ambulance Service said a female in her late teens was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd with an injury to her nose and lower back.

The spokesman could not confirm how serious the girl's injuries were.


MEANWHILE, firefighters are battling flood waters at a Holyhead housing estate.

Fire crews  this afternoon (Monday, November 23) used a major pump and a light portable pump to drain water from at Garreglwyd Park near South Stack Road. 

A North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said four houses were affected by the flood, which at its highest reached 18 inches.

As of 5.20, fire fighters were monitoring the water levels, which are decreasing.

Anglesey Council workers are assisting the fire crews.
