LATEST: Winds leave their mark across Anglesey and Gwynedd


Tomos Hughes

THE 100 mile per hour winds that struck north west Wales yesterday have left their mark with Anglesey and Gwyned still heavily disrupted.

Britannia Bridge was closed during the moring rush hour after a lorry overturned on the bridge, causing an oil spillage, which resulted in long queues of traffic in Menai Bridge.

The Bridge has since re-opened, while there a restriction of high-sided vehicles on Menai Bridge is still in place.

26 schools in Gwynedd have remained closed today, while three Anglesey schools, Ysgol Llangaffo, Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern and Ysgol Ffrwd Win, are also shut.
Trains are back operating between Holyhead and Bangor stations, although Arriva Trains Wales is warning passengers there could be delays.

Ferry services between Holyhead and Ireland are also back running to schedule.

Hundreds of homes and businesses are still without power, with SP engineers working through the night to restore power in properties across the region.
