Police urge caution after 69 smashes in a day


Police are urging motorists to drive carefully as a huge demand was placed on officers following a series of road traffic collisions today (Monday).

Between 7am and 1pm the North Wales force dealt with 69 reports of collisions across the region and officers are asking the public to be mindful of the weather and road conditions as the cold weather is set to continue.

Superintendent Alex Goss from North Wales Police’s Joint Communications Centre said: “Firstly, I’d like to thank the public for their patience this morning. We experienced a surge in demand into our control room reporting collisions across all six counties.

“As a result of two separate collisions two people have been taken to hospital in Stoke with serious injuries and we wish them a full recovery. Investigations are now ongoing to establish the cause of those separate collisions.

“The cold weather is set to continue so I am urging all motorists to take care on the roads and drive according to the conditions. Please allow extra time for your journeys and keep a check on weather reports for your area.”
