North Wales Police published the below picture from Bangor on Dee this morning saying, “It is clearly impassable” as the river edged close to a record high.

“There are various signs across North Wales currently advising and urging people not to try and use certain roads following the atrocious weather. Please DO NOT IGNORE these warning signs or try your luck.”

Natural Resources Wales monitoring at Bangor on Dee indicated that the river is very close to recording the highest levels since 2011 ( 16.35mAOD ) with the flood warning in place unchanged from yesterday. As of Sunday morning levels are rising by Holt and Farndon, however appear to have peaked upriver in Corwen.

Thanks to Shoni Morris for the top and below images, who notes Whithchurch Road / Bangor Mile closed along with the the old bridge.

The Chainbridge Hotel by Llangollen tweeted up another image of the river right outside:
