Floods hit Bangor-on-Dee yesterday and Wrexham.com reporter Liam Randall was on the scene to capture these pictures , not only of the flood levels, but an attempted rescue of sheep by the fire service. Sadly a large number did drown, or have to be put down but several were saved.

Water reached its peak at 2pm, but residents were first alerted at 4am in the morning and told to gather pets and food and wait by the phone for another call as they thought the flood defences were about to be breached, luckily they held though. Bus services are still affected and diverted.

Below are pictures of the attempted rescue of sheep, view with caution.
