PART of the A483 has reopened following a collision near Ruabon.

North Wales Police confirmed shortly after 5.15pm (Thursday) that the A483 was blocked in both directions from junction one (Ruabon) to the A5 roundabout (near Halton).

A spokesman for the force called on drivers to avoid the area and use alternative routes.

Just before 6.30pm, North Wales Police confirmed the closure had been removed and the road was open again in both directions.
