Prime Minister Theresa May ‘In Wrexham Area’ This Morning for people living in or visiting the wrexham area
This article is old - Published: Monday, May 22nd, 2017

The Prime Minister Theresa May is in the ‘Wrexham area’ this morning as part of a promotional visit to launch the Welsh Conservative manifesto.

Update 8am: We will be at the event (inside or out!) and will bring you updates later this morning.

Original overnight information below…

We believe this is the first visit to Wrexham by a Prime Minister since May 4th 2010 when Gordon Brown came to town, a few days later he lost the General Election.

Mrs May is here to ‘launch’ the Welsh Conservatives election Manifesto. There has been no further detail released of what the visit will entail.

Perhaps reflecting security concerns, or the well documented reluctance to appear at publicly trailed events, local Conservatives were only invited yesterday afternoon to today’s event, with the exact location not being revealed until late into the evening to those who pre-registered by 9pm.

Security was so tight even the time of the mid morning event was only released at 7pm.

The Daily Post has published an apparently embargoed copy of what she will say here a few seconds after midnight, however it does not state she is in Wrexham just ‘North Wales’.

No detail of the location of the visit has been made available.

We hope to attend the event and bring you updates later this morning…
