News Chopper

A Griffin Helicopter has landed on Llwyn Isaf ahead of Armed Forces Day tomorrow.

At around 1:45pm the helicopter was spotted hovering over Wrexham, with a few people getting in touch asking why the police helicopter was flying so low over the town centre.

The helicopter was seen circling Eagles Meadow and at one point looked as though it was going to land on KFC!
