Earlier this afternoon a sudden burst of heavy rain and gale force winds resulted in flooding and damage around the town.

At around 3pm there were heavy downpours of rain and hailstone, resulting in an inch of rain to fall in less than an hour.

There were also reports of roof tiles being damaged in Rhosddu and a tree being blown down and blocking a road on Ty Gwyn Lane.

Cameron sent us this picture of tiles damaged.

Under Rhosddu bridge has been flooded, with people getting in touch to say that police are stopping cars from driving under there. Earlier this afternoon there were reports of a crash under the bridge.
