“Large bricks” thrown at police cars on Ruthin Road for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Update: More information has been disclosed around an incident on Ruthin Road earlier today, with bricks thrown at two police vehicles.

“If you have any dash camera footage as you were passing then please let us know.”
