WARNINGS have been issued to motorists to take care and avoid journeys unless they are absolutely necessary.

A North Wales Police spokesperson said: “Heavy rain is making driving conditions difficult in some areas.

“Very high winds across North Wales have led to debris and branches falling off trees, therefore venture out only if absolutely necessary.”

The spokesperson added that the B 5106 from Llanrwst to Gwdir and School Bank Road in Llanrwst are closed. Take care out there.”
